Simple smoothie recipe

Please note this blog is no longer updated. (Click here to find my new blog address).

Are we the only ones with lots of fruit and veggies left over from the 4th of July celebration? My mom brought a flat of peaches, and a watermelon. We were busy all weekend and kind of forgot about harvesting zucchini, so we have four huge ones that are not going to taste the best. They would be perfect for bread or grilling but we don't have grill and its to hot to use the oven. The little guy loves bananas or as we call them bugabugas but he doesn't always eat the whole thing, so I have been putting them in a freezer bag so they don't go to waste. All of this adds up to this mornings inspired idea...

I was searching for zucchini recipes to use this stuff up in a different way then plain old steaming and I saw recipes for smoothies. What a great way to sneak in more veggies, use them up and have a yummy breakfast. The little guy is really great about eating veggies so I never worry much about that but I figured the more the better.

4 strawberries
1/2 banana
1 peach
1/4 c or so watermelon
1/8 c or so zucchini diced
blend and splash in some juice or water if needed. We found this great juice that the little guy loves it has cranberries, banana, strawberries, sweet potato, carrot, and beets.

It made enough for the little guy to have some with his oatmeal, I had a small glass and I made a popsicle with the rest. Perfect breakfast treat for both of us, plus no sugar added!

Green drinks are great and I bet you could use up a lot of zucchini in one. I'll send you some recipes - we have a great recipe for "pickle" relish that uses a lot of squash!
