Nothing can compare to the pure awesomeness and nutrient punch from a cold-pressed juice, but smoothies have their place too! I love vegetable-forward smoothies. It's a great way to add veggies to your diet while enjoying a tasty, frozen treat.
While you're chopping and prepping your cauliflower for the week, set some aside to freeze for your smoothies. Yes, I'm serious! It's flavorless. Kind of like how adding kale, spinach, zucchini and even beans into your smoothies doesn't alter the taste (but ups the nutrients), cauliflower makes a fabulous base for a smoothie and will take on the flavor of whatever else you add, like cinnamon, berries, coconut, and other fruit!
Here's a smoothie I've been loving:
What You'll Need
1 cup frozen organic blueberries
1/4 frozen avocado
1/4 cup coconut meat
1 Tbsp cashew butter
2 cups frozen organic cauliflower
3/4 cup my homemade almond milk
1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
1/4 tsp organic cardamom
1 tsp maca (I used this brand)
1 tsp Ashwagandha (I used this brand)
2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen peptides

What You'll Need To Know
Add everything to a blender and blend until smooth, about 40-60 seconds.
