My granny always had so much leftover zucchini in her garden, it was a challenge to use it all. I invented this recipe when she gifted me a huge bag of zucchini one summer fresh from her garden. Zucchini is very high in water and fiber content. It’s the perfect way to moisten brownies without adding extra fat and get extra fiber in your diet.
This fruity pops are sweet since they combine two antioxidant rich foods, blueberries and spinach. If you visit my SkinnyChef.com website, you can watch the Better TV segment where I feature this recipe!

I created this recipe for my friend, the Fresh Grocer, Tony Tantillo. It’s an Italian spin on classic American flavors of bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes. I also added fresh fennel for extra flavor and texture.
Risotto is prized for its creamy texture and rich taste. Quinoa is naturally creamy and makes a lighter, whole grain version of this popular Italian comfort food. Spinach adds extra nutrition and flavor.
