Chocolate Kefir Zucchini Cake

This is one of the cakes I make a lot in the summer when there’s a lot of fresh zucchini available from my garden. Zucchini is also a wonderful source of potassium, a heart-friendly nutrient that helps moderate your blood pressure levels and counters the effects of too much sodium. In fact, a zucchini has more potassium than a banana. Zucchini is also rich in B-complex vitamins, folate, B6, B1, B2, B3, and with only 17 calories per 100 grams. It makes this cake moist and delicious and oh so good for you!
