Ingredients: Simple and Wholesome

The ingredients list is simple, focusing on health and taste. It includes one serving of Chocolate Nutrisystem Shake Mix, adding a rich, chocolaty base that perfectly complements the other components.

A medium-sized banana, fresh or frozen, lends natural sweetness and creaminess to the smoothie. Meanwhile, one cup of frozen zucchini subtly sneaks in vegetables without overwhelming the flavor profile. You can find this in the freezer section of the grocery store.

Finally, the addition of half a teaspoon each of cinnamon and vanilla extract infuses the smoothie with warm, comforting notes reminiscent of traditional fresh-baked zucchini bread.
