Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie Bowl

With all of the fresh veggies this Summer we are swimming in zucchinis lately from my parents and from our CSA.  On rare mornings when we have an ability to slow down here in NY we make a Chemex pot of coffee, big ol' smoothie bowls and sit out on the porch.  There is something about eating things with spoons that feel so much more fun than just slurping down a smoothie (which don't get me wrong I still will enjoy any day). 

Smoothie spoonful + crunch topping + sip of coffee = heaven.  

Zucchini in a smoothie? Fo-REALZ? 

YES.  When you add zucchini to your smoothie you are getting in a boost of fiber, making your bowl nice and thick, and sneaking in some veggies.  The real kicker - you can't taste it.  

If you have digestive issues I would suggest blanching the zucchini prior to freezing (letting it cool first!) When you have zucchinis coming out the ying-yang--- chop em' up, freeze them, and get ready to blend!
