“When I was a teenager my go-to ice cream was Ben & Jerry's "Cherry Garcia." Now that I'm all grown up, I make this creamy, delicious and super healthy smoothie bowl with wonderful whole-foods based ingredients! Along with avocado, zucchini is the ultimate secret smoothie hack for adding creaminess and thickening it up without sacrificing flavour. Zucchini is a great low carb squash that is rich in both soluble and insoluble fibre making it excellent for gut health. I used my favourite protein powder, Genuine Health's fermented, organic vegan proteins+ chocolate! This is my go-to protein because it is excellent for gut health since all 7 plant proteins are fermented, making the proteins highly bioavailable.” -Joy
