Zucchini Banana Smoothie

Our family is all about smoothies.  It's such a great way to sneak even more fruits and vegetables past my kids. Since I had some zucchini and Chobani Greek yogurt left over from our Double Chocolate Zucchini muffins I decided to see if I could use them in a smoothie. The result was a super simple and refreshing green smoothie.

1/2 zucchini sliced
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup Chobani Vanilla Greek yogurt
1 cup ice
1 tsp cinnamon

Makes 2 cups

Just place all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy.  There's a lot of goodness packed into this smoothie with banana, zucchini, cinnamon and the protein rich Chobani yogurt you can't go wrong.

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Summer is almost over and so is zucchini season.  I love baking with fruits and vegetables. It's one of my favorite ways to sneak in extra nutrition for my kids. The only way I can get my kids to eat vegetables for breakfast is by hiding them in muffins and breads. I especially love baking with zucchini because it doesn't have a strong flavor and it makes everything so moist and delicious. 

To boost these up a notch I decided to substitute Chobani Greek Yogurt for the oil in this recipe and the results were incredible. Greek yogurt is high in protein, low in fat and another way of making your baked goods a little more on the healthy side.
