Have you all been seeing this thing about putting cauliflower in smoothies yet!? Wait wait, don’t leave just yet, I promise this’ll be good!
So here’s what’s up. My favorite health and wellness experts(the Tone It Up girls, Jeannette from Shut the Kale Up, etc.) have all been posting about this new trend and it’s been popping up all over my Instagram too – people are literally putting frozen cauliflower in their smoothies. Like what. The. F. So, obviously, I had to jump on board and see what all the fuss was about, not to mention that I had to try it for you all first so I could relay my honest opinion…
Do you want it?
Okay, I’m not going to lie, before I perfected this smoothie recipe there was a very, very slight hint of cauliflower detected. BUT! That was before I added the necessary ingredients (aka those listed below) to make this taste super delicious! And truthfully, like scouts honor, this cauliflower business makes for a smoothie that is unbelievably creamy. We’re talking milkshake levels of creaminess over here. It’s legit. Not to mention that cauliflower has about a bazillion health benefits from boosting heart and digestive health to anti-inflammatory properties, plus vitamins, minerals and antioxidants galore.
So. if there’s one piece of advice I can offer you today, it would be to try adding cauliflower to your smoothies. And hey, if you hate it (which trust, you will not), you don’t ever have to do it again. But like, you totally will. You’re welcome 😉
Blueberry Power Smoothie
1 small handful frozen cauliflower florets (or 1/4 cup frozen riced caulflower)
1 small handful kale or spinach
1/4 cup milk (any kind, pick your favorite!)
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp peanut butter powder or nut butter of your choice
- Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. My trick is to start with less liquid and then add if I need more, but I like my smoothies super thick. You do you!
Thanks for stopping by, friends. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
