This smoothie bowl is totally dairy-free and suitable for vegans as well.
Can You Taste Zucchini In Smoothies?
Not really! Zucchinis have a very gentle flavor, that isn’t overpowering. When you combine zucchini with things like chocolate, the dominant flavor will be chocolate.
This smoothie bowl with zucchini is made with raw zucchini, banana, and chocolate. Simple, and tasty, a smoothie bowl, made with a twist!
Can You Eat Zucchini Raw?
We added raw zucchini to this smoothie, which brings up the question – Can you eat zucchini raw? The answer is yes, you can totally eat raw zucchini, however, make sure you wash them well!
Make sure you use baby/small zucchini, the bigger the zucchini the bitter it is.
