As you know, I love to use frozen veggies in my smoothie instead of frozen fruit to keep them low-sugar. Cauliflower is so mild that it’s a great filler you can hardly taste, so it’s a good one to sneak into kids’ smoothies! I really love all sweet potatoes, no matter the color. For this one, to keep the color light, I used a white sweet potato.
¾ cup frozen steamed cauliflower*
1 cup frozen roasted, peeled & cubed sweet potato*
½ frozen banana (I use a whole banana for my nephews)*
¼ cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon maca
1 tablespoon mesquite powder
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
a few ice cubes
a scoop collagen (not vegan)
cacao nibs, seeds, granola, fruit
Blend everything together using a High speed blender until it’s a creamy texture, adding another splash of coconut milk if you need it.
*This smoothie bowl only works if your veggies and banana are frozen. I steam then freeze my cauliflower. For sweet potatoes, I will roast, let cool, then peel and cube my sweet potato, portion into baggies and freeze. You can even reuse your baggies 🙂
**For a sweeter version you can add 1 tablespoon of maple or honey. Sometimes I omit the dates and add a scoop of my Sun Warrior protein powder that is sweetened with stevia.
