I tested this smoothie on my number one taste tester - Gordy; and I didn't dare tell him that it was made with cauliflower because I knew what his reaction would be. NO thanks. So with a twinkle in my eye, I presented him with this beautiful blue smoothie. I sensed a bit of hesitation, I know he is thinking there is more to this smoothie then just blueberries. I waited and happily heard music to my ears...seconds please. So there you have it, proof that cauliflower hides behind all the (healthy) deliciousness in this smoothie.
Cauliflower Smoothie with Blueberries and Cinnamon
For the record cauliflower adds zero taste to your smoothie, what it does add is a super creamy texture, and if you use frozen cauliflower and frozen blueberries you may just believe that you are feasting on a milkshake.
1 cup fresh or frozen cauliflower florets
1 cup loosely packed greens of choice, I used swiss chard
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp hemp hearts
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ripe banana
water, (about 1 cup)
1. Add all ingredients to blender, add a cup or so water, then blend until very smooth.
2. Add more water if needed and blend again.
3. Drink and enjoy!
I used frozen cauliflower for this smoothie. I have made it with fresh cauliflower and it was just as delicious, I add a few ice cubes to make it colder and thicker. Just so you know frozen cauliflower is lightly steamed. When I use fresh I don't bother cooking the cauliflower first.
You can use fresh blueberries too.
Store any leftovers in the fridge.
