Chocolate Zucchini Smoothie

No I'm not losing my mind, zucchini and chocolate actually goes together very well, with zucchini adding creaminess to the texture. Thanks to the tahini and cashews, this smoothie will keep you going for hours. Don't knock it until you try it!


1 red apple, cored and chopped (skin on)
½ zucchini, chopped (peel on)
2 medjool dates, pitted (optional for extra sweetness)
¼ cup activated cashews
1 tablespoon raw cacao
1 tablespoon tahini
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coconut water


Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend for 60 sec until smooth and creamy. Pour into glass and enjoy.
