Yes, you read that right... cauliflower in a smoothie!! Despite what you may be thinking, you can't taste it at all.  It makes your smoothie thick and creamy, a la all the smoothie bowls you see on Instagram.  I've tried making it both with the Red Grapefruit + Rosemary Kefir and the Pear + Ginger Kefir; both work beautifully.

Ingredients
Serves 1-2

3 small florets cauliflower (cooked and frozen)
5 walnut sized chunks carrot (cooked and frozen)
1 underripe/green banana (a great prebiotic source)
500ml water kefir – both Red Grapefruit + Rosemary and Pear + Ginger work really well

Optional: 1 scoop collagen powder

Method

- When you have a spare 5 minutes, steam some chopped cauliflower and carrots, before allowing to cool and then freezing.  I do this with all sorts of vegetables, meaning I have a lovely array of smoothie fillings to hand.  Broccoli and beetroot work perfectly, as do spinach and peas (although I don’t steam these).

- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  It’s that easy!!
