This classic, lightly sweetened, mostly-cauliflower smoothie is a fresh take on a healthy vegetable-based smoothie. It's perfect for those for those up their veggie-based smoothie game.
But cauliflower in a smoothie? From a flavor perspective, you won’t even taste the cauliflower or other veggies in there. This recipe offers a creamy, thick texture without the added sugars from a banana, plus a ton of added benefits!
Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable full of minerals and vitamins, like calcium, folate, potassium, and tons of Vitamin C. Half a cup of cauliflower is equal to almost half your recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. Let's drink to that!
