Cheery Cherry and Cauliflower Smoothie from Anyonita-Nibbles


Eat Seasonably Campaign
In an effort to save money grocery shopping and to highlight the importance of eating with seasons, I've decided to launch a new series called "Eat Seasonably."  Each month, I'll feature unique recipes for seasonal produce. Okay, here we go, eating seasonably, getting the most out of our produce and saving money!



Cherry and Cauliflower Smoothie
Ingredients:
For the cherry and cauliflower smoothie
1/2 banana
1/2 cup semi-skimmed milk
1 pot of  0% cherry yogurt
1 tsp honey
2 small to medium sized cauliflower florets
handful of frozen cherries


All right, let's cook:
For the smoothie, begin by pouring the milk into your blender. Next, add the florets, banana, cherries and yogurt. Drizzle over the honey and blitz until smooth and frothy.

  1. I want to try the smoothie. I love cherry drinks and cherry blossoms ( as you could tell from my post on them) A smoothie is so refreshing and spring like!

    1. Oh, definitely try it, Marie! I was so surprised that I couldn't really taste the cauliflower. I gave some to my son, sneaky way to get his 5-a-day in!

  2. This smoothie looks so cool! I've never thought about putting cauliflower into one but I bet it totally helps thicken it up (plus adds veggies) Definitely going to try!

    1. Hi Jen,
      No, you can't taste the cauliflower at all! :) I love cooked cauliflower but can't really stand it raw, so when I took my first sip, I was cringing! lol :)

    1. I know! It's great that you can sneak in the healthy stuff and mask it with sweet cherry, isn't it? I've been giving Callum (my son) smoothies every time I have one to boost his veggies! :) Sneaky, sneaky, but it works!
