Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana frozen
  • ½ cup riced cauliflower frozen
  • 1 scoop protein powder (vanilla or chocolate- I typically drink vanilla so that's what I used!)
  • tbsp peanut butter
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips or cocoa nibs

Instructions

  • In a blender, blend together the banana, cauliflower, protein powder, peanut butter, salt, and ½ cup of milk to start. Depending on the consistency you are going for and how high powered your blender is, add the remaining ¼-1/2 cup of milk.
  • Add in the chocolate chips/cocoa nibs and blend again until they have turn into bits.
  • Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!

Notes

  • This smoothie can be 1-2 servings. I usually drink a while one for a meal, or half for a snack.
  • Frozen bananas are the best for smoothies. I sometimes buy an extra bundle at the store, bring them home and peel them to go right into the freezer. That way I always have a stash on hand for a quick smoothie or bowl!
  • I buy riced cauliflower in the frozen section of my grocery store. It's great because it already comes riced and it's so easy to scoop into smoothies.
  • If you like thick smoothies, start with less milk and add gradually until you get a thickness you like. If you add too much and your smoothie is too thin, blend in a few ice cubes.
  • You can customize this smoothie to your liking- you can halve the banana or peanut butter, use chocolate protein powder (or no protein powder), and add more veggies like spinach.
  • Make this into a smoothie bowl by using less milk (for a thicker consistency) and adding things like granola, chia seeds, sliced banana, strawberries, cocoa nibs, shredded coconut, and drizzled peanut butter.
