Chocolate Zucchini Bread Smoothie

Disclaimer, I made this once and haven’t made it again because zucchini hurts my stomach. I thought being pregnant would change the fact that zucchini hurts my stomach but nope, still bloated up like a painful balloon. Good news it that I can still eat dairy totally fine when pregnant and this smoothie tastes great. So if you like zucchini, and your stomach agrees, make this today!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread Smoothie:

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp manuka honey
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (or another nut butter of choice)
  • 1 handful frozen zucchini
  • 1/3 frozen banana
  • 1 cup milk of choice,
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 10 ice cubes

Directions:

Blend all of the ingredients together until smoothie and pour into a tall glass. Top with chocolate granola and puffed kamut cereal. Zucchini, do you eat it? I am so envious of all the zucchini recipes that I’ve been seeing lately so be sure to eat and extra slice of something for me.

Mint Cacao Chip Smoothie

Not a new smoothie on the block but definitely one that pleases the whole fam and one that I keep making each week. You know me, there’s lot of frozen riced cauliflower in here so it’s veggie and antioxidant packed. Winning!

Mint Cacao Chip Smoothie (Makes a smoothie serving size enough for Poppy and I to share):

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 cup frozen rice cauliflower
  • 1-2 handful of spinach
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup plain kefir
  • Small handful fresh mint or 1/2-1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1-2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • Handful of ice
  • Optional 1-2 dates but the protein powder I used makes it sweet enough for me

Blend it all together and enjoy! Poppy learned a new fun trick last week. She keeps liquid in her mouth for a really long time until she decides she’s done then squirts it out wherever she is… let’s just say I don’t let her walk around with any type of liquid in a cup, even her water bottle, anymore unless I want to step in a pile of whatever it is in 20 minutes. Cheers!

Vanilla Cashew Walnut Mylk

Joel used the last of the milk for his cereal before his 7am calculus 2 class the other day so I had to improvise for my cold brew. I’m not mad about it either because this is the BEST dairy free mylk I’ve ever had!

Vanilla Cashew Walnut Mylk:

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1-2 pitted dates
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 cups filtered water

Directions: You probably want to soak the nuts before blending but I didn’t have the patience to do so. So either soak the nuts overnight, or at least four hours, for maximum flavor or just add everything to a blender like me and blend on high until smooth (I use a Vitamix). Strain using a reusable nut milk bag (I found mine on Amazon) and pour into a jar/glass container. This mylk tastes so good in any of my #coldbrewlikerobin recipes and especially just added straight into some freshly brewed cold brew! I make my cold brew with the Ninja Kitchen hot and cold brew maker. Oh! I mixed my collagen protein powder with the mylk in my Nespresso frother on the “cold” setting. Store bought milks will foam but my homemade one doesn’t on the cold setting. I add my collagen the same way when I do my hot coffee pours too, enjoy!
