Cauliflower Smoothie

Everyone was doing it….so I had to try, too.

Putting frozen cauliflower in a smoothie sounded bizarre and even downright gross when I first heard about it. But the more I saw other smoothie lovers and drinkers adding it to their morning blend, I thought maybe I was missing out on an out-of-the-box idea of how to get different veggies into my family.

Fine. And me, too. I’m not the biggest cauli lover on the planet, but I do know it is an awesome source of fiber, vitamins, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, and protein. So, I try to sneak that white veggie into our lives wherever I can….so I finally decided to give the cauliflower smoothie a whirl.

Can you taste cauliflower in smoothies?

TNNers, it’s not weird! Or maybe it sounds downright gross. Or the least bit funky!

Fear not! I’m here to tell you that cauliflower makes a smoothie super creamy and veggie-loaded without having to add spinach into the mix (the slightest tint of green can send some kids (and grown-ups) running for the hills, this I know)….so adding frozen cauliflower into your morning smoothie is a great way get some morning veggies into even the most resistant of veggie eaters!

Do I need to cook the cauliflower before adding it to my smoothie?

Totally a personal choice. Cauliflower can be enjoyed raw, but some people find that it makes them gassy or gives them digestive issues.

Quickly cooking the cauliflower during a meal prep and then freezing it helps to make the cauliflower smoothie easy to pull together on a busy weekday morning, but also saves me from feeling ick later.

If raw cauliflower doesn’t bother you, by all means, skip that step and dump frozen cauliflower into the blender!

Does the cauliflower have to be frozen for this smoothie recipe?

Yes. There is something magical about how frozen cauliflower breaks down in a smoothie to give it a creamy texture while also adding veggies. I’ve tried this smoothie with raw cauliflower and found the results to be different.
