I absolutely love smoothies, especially when they are veggie heavy.
Lately, I've been throwing in Cauliflower in my smoothie since it contains more vitamin C than oranges. It's full of vitamin B, fiber and has a high amount of antioxidant nutrients. This in return helps prevent free radicals from damaging the body’s cells.
Cauliflower also contains potassium and phosphorous, which helps support and repair the body’s nervous system and immune systems, muscles, and bones. It also helps lower your blood sugar levels and gives your smoothies an incredible creamy texture. All of these are excellent reasons to throw some into your morning or midday smoothies. As for the taste? You'd never suspect cauli being an ingredient since it is virtually flavorless!
