Vanilla & Chai Smoothie
I’d say that, at first, the idea of blending cauliflower into a smoothie didn’t seem appetizing to me. And while I love a good nutritious smoothie, I also want it to, like… taste REALLY good.
I was surprisingly pleased that you literally can’t taste the cauliflower. The secret is to steam and freeze the night before the day you want to make this smoothie.
This smoothie is an excellent alternative if you want a low-carb breakfast or snack option or just want a break from the endless options of “banana” smoothies.
If you want to make this smoothie, all you need to do to prep is cut, steam, and freeze the cauliflower the night before you want to make it. If you don’t have cauliflower on hand, it will taste delicious with banana or zucchini too.
My recommendation is that you peel, steam, and freeze the zucchini. It’s a great way to sneak some veggies without compromising the flavor because that’s key!
