No-Banana, Low-Sugar Smoothie

So many smoothie recipes feature banana, but you can use frozen zucchini and some avocado (both technically fruit) to achieve that same consistency without the added sugars. Simply chop a zucchini and freeze the pieces in a container or baggie. In addition, coconut water naturally tastes sweet but is full of minerals and nutrients and has a low glycemic index. This smoothie is full of fiber and healthy fats and great for anyone looking for a lower glycemic load.


  • 1 ½ cups coconut water
  • 1 cup sliced and frozen zucchini
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds
  • a pinch of sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!
