Fruit and Veg Chocolate Smoothie

Creating the perfect smoothie involves a good balance of sweet and savoury. Although most would find zucchini quite an unusual addition to a smoothie, it has quite a neutral flavour therefore balances out the sweetness of the fruit without being too overpowering (and of course it's a bonus that it's green). You might hesitate, but I would recommend giving this one a go!


1 red apple, cored and chopped
½ zucchini, chopped
2 tablespoons raw cacao
2 tablespoons natural coconut yoghurt
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼ cup cashew milk


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