Thick Blueberry Cauliflower Smoothie Bowl
New year, new smoothie bowl!
Raise your hand if you feel like the last two weeks have felt like a non-stop marathon of eating and drinking?
Trust me, I feel you!
I don’t care how cliché a post-New Year’s smoothie recipe is, I need like a million and one of these to make up for all the dessert, wine, and cheese I’ve consumed. So if you’re feeling this way as well, be cliché with me! Let’s do it.
The holidays were more than amazing, and I am so happy to have been able to spend so much time with family and friends — but with all that fun we had, I am in dire need of some greens and Millennia Tea!
I just love how this smoothie fills me up enough to carry me through till lunch (or mid-morning snack ), and how delicious it actually is, while simultaneously being good for you. I added a Superfood Millennia Tea Cube for many reasons – but one being that one serving blended delivers 15x the antioxidants over a cup of conventional green tea.
Scientific and medical research shows that these green tea superfood cubes positively supports health and longevity in the following ways:
- Enhanced brain health and cognitive function
- Slows cells aging
- More energy and clarity
- Decreased inflammation
- Metabolic health
- Protecting cells and neutralizing free radical damage to help prevent and fight disease

How To Make Your Smoothies Extra Thick
I always have a stash of bananas, cauliflower, and zucchini in the freezer because they’re perfect in smoothies! Frozen berries such as blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, are also great! Plus, frozen fruit tends to be cheaper, and you can find fruit that might not be in season! Budget-friendly and delicious? That’s a win-win.
Don’t Use Much Liquid
The better the blender, the less liquid you’ll have to use. If you don’t have a fancy blender, you might need a bit more liquid but try to only use a little at a time while you’re blending. If you add too much, it’ll be runny. I start with a little bit and add an extra splash if it’s too thick to blend.
Adding Chia Seeds
Adding in a tablespoon of chia seeds will add healthy fats that also make your smoothie thicker! They’re a natural thickener. This can be especially helpful if you’re not eating your smoothie right away. After just a few minutes, the chia will start to absorb liquid from the smoothie, and the seeds will expand, creating a thicker texture.
This smoothie is the consistency of ice cream- the thicker the better!
