No Banana Smoothie Base

As someone who has been making smoothies pretty much every single day of my life for the past 6 years (umm yea…that’s over 2,000 smoothies) I’ve played around with A LOT of recipes. The trick to making a great smoothie is having the right consistency, coldness and flavor combo. The recipe below ticks all the boxes. To keep it low GI, we use half a banana. Adding in the frozen avocado & frozen cauliflower adds a thick creamy texture when it all whips together.  This baby is packed with healthy fat and protein to will keep you going through the morning. Makes enough to share, but I tend to be greedy and keep it all to myself 🙂

Throw all the ingredients in the blender and blitz on high!

  • Splash of coconut water / non-dairy milk (add more liquid depending on desired thickness)
  • 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower (optional!)
  • A few small chunk frozen avocado
  • A handful frozen blueberries / strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon flax
  • 2-3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon himalayan salt
  • 1 large tablespoon almond butter (or other nut butter)
  • a few blocks of ice if needed

Add ins….

  • 1 tablespoon beet powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamon
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao
  • Handful of goji berries
  • 2 scoops of collagen protein

PS: If you prefer a little extra sweetness feel free to add a date, honey or banana.
