Mixed Berry + Cauliflower Smoothie Bowl
As much as I absolutely love my morning smoothies, sometimes I have a hard time filling them up with enough greens to balance out the sweetness of fruit like banana and mango (what I usually keep in my freezer at all times). I do my best to keep my blood sugar in check, especially in the mornings, and so I’ve been looking for new ways to bulk up my smoothies + acai bowls without making them overly sweet and this is where I have recently become obsessed with using frozen cauliflower.
Not only is cauliflower super high in fiber, but when frozen it virtually has no taste, and so it’s the perfect add-on to just about every sort of smoothie. I had one acai packet leftover this weekend that I wanted to use up and threw this together on a whim but wanted to share because it was so refreshing and took about 3 minutes to blend!
Also, in honor of heading down under this weekend, I wanted to take a moment to share my absolute favorite nut milk brand that just so happens to be from Australia: Milkadamia. I refuse to buy store-bought nut milks just because making cashew milk at home is so easy (you can find my recipe here) but I make an exception for milkadamia because it is truly the best tasting nut milk I’ve ever bought at a store. I buy mine in a 6-pack from Amazon so that I can always keep it on hand and I highly recommend the unsweetened version (no added sugars!). I prefer to use milkadamia in my coffee because of it’s naturally sweet flavor and due to being high in good fats which help to metabolize caffeine and prevent a jittery feeling. Between the mix of the milkadamia and mixed berries, this bowl was the most magenta and tasted much fancier than it was to throw together!
