Cauliflower Berry Smoothie

Cauliflower Berry Smoothie

Cauliflower Berry Smoothie recipe & content provided Ryan Carter, @livevitae

My friends and family think I’m crazy when I tell them I add cauliflower to my smoothies. They’re missing out! Cauliflower adds a neutral creaminess to this berry smoothie without dairy, plus important nutrients like choline and vitamin C.

Smoothies deliver fast nutrition, and this berry smoothie is no exception. The ingredients get blitzed and blended within minutes. Quick smoothies also reduce decision fatigue over your food, especially during non-fasting morning or workouts where you need a healthy recovery shake.

This berry smoothie boasts a vibrant color and incredible taste, which makes it a perfect option for picky eaters too. You can use any low-fructose berry you prefer, or use less liquid to create a thicker and creamier texture.

To cut down on prep time for your berry smoothie, get your cauliflower ready beforehand. Chop, steam and freeze in a lined glass container. It will be ready to toss in a blender in no time.

Get veggie benefits (without the veggie taste): This Cauliflower Berry Smoothie packs fiber, nutrients and polyphenols into one sweet, unsuspecting drink.
