"I discovered 2 giant zucchini in my garden. I decided to turn this treasure into a challenge and made a whole meal in which each course or dish featured zucchini in some way. This delicious concoction was what I came up with for dessert. The kids raved about it and asked for seconds." — 5THSISTER

I made this for my boys back when 5thsister posted it on "the exchange". They loved it, had no idea there was any zucchini in it at all. I used Peanut Butter and Co's Bees Knees peanut butter and FF half-n-half. I'll make this again often.
Too sweet and too rich. I do like like the idea of using zucchini thou. Will try it again with less sugar and less chocolate.
Outstanding !!!! Can't even taste the Zucchini and I even added more ! Used walnuts intead of peanuts and almond milk in place of half and half because that is what we had on hand . I would give this a 10, and so did the kids and my husband, my new Fav. ? smoothie !!!!!
I'm 5thsister's daughter, and both my younger brother and I love this recipe! We were a bit hesitant to try it at first (but in this house, you have to at least try), but quickly finished it and made her promise to make it again.
Excellent! I love the idea of adding zucchini to this smoothie. I made some changes for a healthier version: I omitted the sugar, used protein powder chocolate flavor instead of cocoa, soy milk instead of hanf an half and peanut butter. I will definitely make it again. Thanks!
This is fabulous! I used fat-free half and half and natural peanut butter instead of the peanuts, and probably reduced the sugar by about half, but I didn't quite measure it out. It was perfectly sweet, so I'll do that again next time, too. I don't like ice in my smoothies, and like other frozen fruits, the frozen zucchini was "softer" than ice, but still lent that icy, slushy feel to this drink. Plus, ice doesn't have the nutrients and fiber that zucchini does, so this worked perfectly! Great job, 5thsister! :)
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!This was an awsome shake!!due to my kids diet needs I used 1/2 skim milk and 1/2 yougert in place of half and half. I also used 2 table spoons honey instead of sugar. what a great way to bring in veggies into a treat! Ill make this often!!
My son, who is very picky about food, asked for seconds! I was thrilled that he was getting some zucchini and the added benefits from the banana + peanut butter (instead of nuts) + milk made me feel good that he was getting something good to drink. Only change I will make next time is not to add all the sugar or sub some honey in it's place. My sister made this for her boys after I told her of this zuchinni smoothie recipe and, voila! they drank it down too! Thanks for the recipe, glad I didn't knock it before I tried it!
