Have you ever considered putting a zucchini in a smoothie?

I tried it recently and now no breakfast smoothie goes zucchini-less. A great source of fiber, manganese, antioxidants, vitamins C, B and A (with barely any calories — 21 per cup!), zucchini are practically tasteless, which makes them an amazing addition to any blended creation.
