I’ve been experimenting with something I have a lot of right now; zucchini! So, here’s the scoop:
If you pick zucchini while it is relatively young, like these pictured were about 10 inches long and a couple of inches in diameter, you can slice them and flash freeze them on a cookie sheet and they work very well in smoothies.
By “very well” I mean, you get veggies but you can’t taste them. Know what I mean?
Flash freezing them first, like these pictured on a cookie sheet, means that you’ll be able to pull them out of a bag one at a time because they were frozen singly, and not smashed together. Freezing them helps you to store them for awhile of course, but also helps the texture and temperature of your smoothie! (Frozen zucchini also works well for making zucchini bread!)
I also freeze bananas that are a little old, by just breaking them into a bag and putting them in the freezer. No need to flash freeze them because they are easy to break apart when they are frozen.
I also freeze lemon juice (in ice cube trays, then transfer to a freezer bag), lemon zest, ginger, kale, spinach, peaches, berries, cherries, apricots, goat’s milk, and anything else I can get my hands on.
