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!
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 a lot of added sweetener going into this zucchini smoothie. 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!
- 1/4 cup chopped zucchini, frozen
- 1/2 cup sliced peaches, frozen
- 1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt
- 10 ice cubes
- 1 TBS Honey
- 2 cups V8 V-Fusion refreshers, Cherry Berry
- Place all ingredients in your blender, and blend until smooth.

I love that there is zucchini in this! I am always delighted with a recipe that has hidden veggies so I can sneak them into my kids without them even knowing! Pinning this!
I would love for you to come over and link up at Wine'd Down Wednesday if you get a chance. We party every week from Tuesday evening to late Friday night! Hope to see you there!
Thanks for inviting me Kristin! I'm always trying to sneak veggies in, but it's a rare occasion it actually works.
Wow, I never thought to put zucchini in a smoothie. Awesome idea!
I haven't made a smoothie in forever but they'll be hitting our menu again with all the running we'll be doing close to lunch for the next few months.

You are finding good uses for that freezer full of zucchini. I have to laugh at the "gelatinous" lump comment. Husbands can be too kind.
I still have so much in there Diane! Thankfully I can fit a few other things in the freezer again though.
Wow, does that smoothie look delicious! Would love for you to come share this post at my link party, Allergy Friendly Lunchbox Love. I know I'd like to find a thermos of this in MY lunchbox 🙂
