Recipe: Blueberry and Frozen Cauliflower Smoothie

Yes,  there’s frozen cauliflower in this smoothie. And it’s good! It really doesn’t taste like much – but it does add a nice texture to the smoothie. Think of cauliflower as a way to replace bananas in a smoothie. Whatever recipe you use, sub 1/2 cup of frozen cauliflower when you would normally add 1/2 a banana.

Using cauliflower will result in having less sugar in your smoothie. In my view this makes for a great afternoon smoothie as it has less sugar.

If you want to give it a try, this is something I whipped up and it was good!

Blueberry and Frozen Cauliflower Smoothie

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup almond milk (or whatever milk you like to use)
  • 1 scoop of protein (I used vanilla whey)
  • 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 avocado (or half depending on how much fat you want in there)
  • 1/2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds or hemp hearts (optional)

Place all of this in a blender, and enjoy! If you want the smoothie to be thinner, add water to loosen it up.
