I have been on a search for the perfect smoothie blend with little to no sweetener, and packed full of healthy goodness while still tasting good. When I saw the V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers in Black Cherry Berry flavor I knew it was going to be the juice base for my next smoothie.
Mark has called my previous smoothies a "gelatinous" lump, and so stopped drinking them. This time I was determined to get a consistency he liked, and would drink. This was perfect for him, and he actually enjoyed the Cherry Berry Zucchini smoothie. Just please don't tell him it has cherries in it, I don't think he noticed!
The kids loved it as well, and ignored the fact that there is a good bit of Zucchini in it. I loved it because I knew my kids and husband just got some awesome helpings of fruit and veggies, with no added sugars. V8 V-Fusion Refreshers first ingredient is Water and is followed up with fruit and vegetable juices. The rest of the list if short and contains all things that I can pronounce and actually know what it is. SCORE one for the health department.
For the smoothie I did add some of my homemade peach honey which does contain sugar, but at 1 TBS of honey, there's not much added sweetener going in. I think I'm going to continue adding V8 V-Fusion® Refreshers to my smoothies for the extra boost of flavor and fruit/vegetable servings. Too bad my kids drank almost a whole bottle of the Tangerine Passionfruit in one meal - that would have made a pretty good smoothie base too!
Can you get any better than this? A juice made up mostly of water, home grown zucchini and peaches from my mom's tree. Nope, it does not get any better! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
And check this out! I just taught myself how to make a cool looking recipe card that you can print out!
What's your favorite smoothie?
