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!
