Sounds weird, we know. But adding frozen, chopped or riced cauliflower to your morning or post-workout smoothie is a stellar way to insert fiber, folate, vitamin C and vitamin B6 into your day. Plus, because 1 cup of cauliflower contains just 2 grams of sugar (compared to a frozen banana, which has 15 grams), cauliflower-containing smoothies are a good option if you follow a low-glycemic diet.
Try crafting a smoothie with almond milk, cacao nibs, peppermint leaves, vanilla extract, one or two dates and ¼ cup of frozen cauliflower rice for a surprisingly creamy, filling nosh. We also love cauliflower in smoothies that feature a chocolate-flavored, plant-based protein powder (TRY: Aloha Organic Protein Powder Chocolate), berries and reishi mushroom powder—throw in a few ice cubes to give it a frosty punch.
