Easy Vegan Vanilla Smoothie
Lush Vegan Vanilla Smoothie
This one is a good one - 10 points for minimal ingredients and nutritional benefits! The main ingredient here is… cauliflower!
Have you tried cauliflower in a smoothie before? If not, get on that wagon stat! Cauliflower is excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants (like vitamin C), vitamin K and folate (hello, pregnancy). It’s also low in sugars (only a few grams of carbs per 100g!), and fuels our body with healthy fiber. You can’t really taste it much, and a frozen version adds creaminess and turns the smoothie into a dreamy meal!
1 cup of cauliflower, cooked and frozen
1 tbsp of cashew nut butter
2 tbsp of avocado
1 1/2 medjool date
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (20g) (I use Form Nutrition)
dash of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of cold water (or sub for plant based milk)
1/4 cup of plant based milk
Put all ingredient into a high speed blender and mix until smooth. I like this smoothie to be a bit thicker, but you can add more water/ milk depending on desired consistency. Enjoy and tell me what you think!
