There’s a new smoothie in town and shockingly it doesn’t include frozen bananas or nut butter. I go through phases with smoothies – I’ll drink them for weeks and then I’ll be totally over them and can’t even think about blending one up for months. Currently I’m experiencing the phase where I’m drinking several smoothies a week.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I teach a lunchtime “sweat” class. I usually leave the class starving (despite my mid-morning snack) and find myself craving something cold and that is easy to assemble. Enter in this creation.
In the mix:
12 ounces liquid (I used a cup of almond milk plus 1/2 cup water)
4 frozen Just Coconut Chunks (new find at Trader Joes)
1/2 a small avocado (adds so much creaminess)
1 scoop protein powder (I use a plant-based, gluten-free, dairy free and no stevia powder)
1/4-1/3 cup frozen riced cauliflower (another find at Trader Joes)
Large handful spinach
Blend until creamy.
I pinky-promise that you can not taste the cauliflower or the spinach in this smoothie. It’s ridiculously thick (aka sometimes you need a spoon) and it tastes delicious. I love the subtle hint of coconut.
It’s refreshing, it’s healthy and it’s super filling.
