A Green Smoothie is a great way to eat your veggies without tasting them. This simple, creamy raw vegan smoothie uses more veggies than fruits (no bananas either) as compared to most traditional smoothie recipes. The avocado and zucchini give the shake a very creamy texture while the ripe green grapes give a balance of acidity and sweetness.
