INGREDIENTS YOU NEED FOR THE CAULIFLOWER BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE BOWL
You will need the following ingredients listed below to make the smoothie bowl (the exact ingredients, measurements and detailed information are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post):
- Frozen Cauliflower – organic cauliflower, raw cauliflower florets, or frozen cauliflower rice all work.
- Frozen Blueberries – fresh blueberries will also work but won’t make the smoothie as thick. Organic blueberries or wild blueberries are best.
- Cashew Butter
- Almond Milk – can use part coconut water as well if desired.
- Vanilla Protein Powder
- Frozen Avocado
- Optional – Superfood Millennia Tea Cube, lime juice, frozen banana, bee pollen, hemp seeds, other favorite fruits, tbsp almond butter, tbsp coconut flakes, etc.
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 high speed 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!
