I love veggies, but we all have days where we could use an extra nutritional boost. To save time on this blueberry vanilla smoothie, I steam cauliflower in advance and store it in the freezer. Then, I simply add a few florets to make my smoothie thick and creamy — no sugary bananas needed!

Sweet and swirly, with no added sugar: This blueberry vanilla smoothie recipe delivers big flavor (and hidden veggies) with every sip. (Paleo, low-carb)
