Cauliflower in smoothies, for real? YES!!! I have been reading rave reviews about adding this humble vegetable into smoothies for a creamier and richer texture and taste. And boy was I impressed with this BERRIES AND CAULIFLOWER SMOOTHIE BOWL! You actually won’t taste the cauliflower in it. Well, maybe a little but it’s very subtle. Adding berries into the mix gives it the sweetness you’ll need plus the loads of antioxidants of course!
I steamed one head of cauliflower (cut into florets first), then froze it in ziploc bags. I used the pre-packed mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries) from the grocery store since some of these are seasonal here in Melbourne. You may also just freeze the fresh fruits if you have. Frozen fruits give your smoothies the creamy and thick texture which is perfect for smoothie bowls. I then added my vanilla protein powder, and also some chia seeds to make it into a power-boosting breakfast. I topped it with fresh strawberries, muesli, and coconut flakes. Done in minutes! Gone in minutes! Doesn’t it look divine? Wait til’ you taste it. I’m a total cauliflower smoothie convert!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen cauliflower (steamed then frozen)
3/4 cup frozen mixed berries
1 tbsp chia seeds
scoops of high-quality protein powder in vanilla (I use THIS)
toppings of choice
Blend on high in a blender until smooth. Top with your favorite fresh fruits, muesli or rolled oats or granola, and some coconut flakes.
If you wish for this to be a smoothie drink, then you may add more milk for a thinner consistency.
