Gut-Loving Zucchini Cherry Smoothie

Give your gut some love and whip up this delicious, nutritious zucchini cherry smoothie.

Zucchini, you say?

Yes, zucchini! Leafy greens aren't the only green vegetables that taste great in smoothies, and like spinach, kale and chard, zucchini is high in antioxidants and fibre, so it encourages a healthy gut.

Toss in a handful of cherries (which are also antioxidant-rich and may help expedite exercise recovery), and you've got the perfect smoothie to support your total body health and fitness.
