Hello, Healthy Breakfast in a Glass
Although I love breakfasts like pancakes and French toast, I tend to reserve those types of meals for weekend mornings.
So when I'm looking to get out the door—or just to my desk!—early in the morning, I like a quick, easy, and nutritious breakfast. That's why I love smoothies so much.
And this time of year, with the holidays in full force, I feel like my schedule is so packed. I don't anticipate that feeling easing up in the new year, which is why I love having go-to easy breakfast recipes on hand. I mean, how can you say no to this cashew milk smoothie?
No doubt you've enjoyed cauliflower in many ways before, including rice cauliflower. But have you ever put cauliflower in a smoothie?
Why You Should Blend Up This Cauliflower Smoothie
Because I like to get as many nutrients, including health-helping vitamins and minerals, from my smoothies, I added lots of fruits and veggies to my recipe. These include wild blueberries, strawberries, and cauliflower.
If you didn't already know, wild blueberries are so good for you. Not only do they offer double the antioxidants of regular blueberries, they also assist with everything from brain health to immunity.
The deep purple-blue color comes from anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant that are very beneficial for your health. The berries and cauliflower in this cauliflower blueberry smoothie also provide fiber, which helps keep you fuller for longer.
You can use white or purple cauliflower in this cauliflower berry smoothie recipe, but I decided to go with purple to add even more antioxidants and to make the purple color of the smoothie even more vibrant.
In a regular smoothie recipe, I'd typically use dairy milk. And I often use almond milk in vegan smoothie recipes, but I used cashew milk in this cauliflower strawberry smoothie for a change of pace. I don't love including coconut milk in smoothie recipes because it doesn't offer much in the protein department.
I also used several vegan ingredients—powdered peanut butter, cashew milk, and cashew yogurt—to amp up the protein in this smoothie. I love using tasty forms of plant-based protein. These protein ingredients helps keep you satiated for longer!
If you'd like the breakfast smoothie to be colder, you can freeze the cauliflower and add the frozen cauliflower to your cashew milk smoothie. You already have frozen blueberries in the mix.
