Inspiration for a Smoothie Recipe

Lately we’ve seen cauliflower smoothies pop up on our social media feed. We got inspired and decided to recipe test a cauliflower smoothie.

After testing it out, we realized cauliflower is actually pretty amazing in smoothies. This underrated vegetable gives such a beautiful thick consistency to any smoothie or smoothie bowl.

Sometimes when making banana smoothies or nice cream, the consistency can become a bit runny. Using cauliflower holds its consistency longer.

Tips and Modifications

  • Cauliflower: It’s best to use pre-frozen cauliflower. If none on hand, steam a floret and freeze overnight. Even though we used frozen white cauliflower, purple cauliflower is great as well.
  • Fruit: Even though this is a blueberry cauliflower smoothie experiment with other frozen fruit! Non frozen fruit will also be delicious in a smoothie but the consistency and cool temperature that makes this drink so great will be missing.
  • Nut Butter: We used peanutbutter for this recipe but almond butter and sunflower butter are just as delicious. If you are looking to stay nut free, omit the but butter altogether.
  • Spice: We added cinnamon to the recipe but this is optional.

This smoothie will have a thick consistency, given the bananas, blueberries and cauliflower are frozen. It can be served as a smoothie or a smoothie bowl. For us, we chose a spoon instead of a straw to enjoy this recipe.

You can top with many things such as nut butters, seeds, nuts, grains, fruits, hemp hearts, chia seeds and more!
