Makes 2 smoothie bowls. Prep 15 minutes.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons ground flax meal (see note if you don’t have ground flax)

1 cup almond milk

3 tablespoons raw cacao powder

1/4 cup natural peanut butter (just peanut butter and sea salt, no added sugar)

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 large frozen bananas, cut in pieces

1 cup frozen cauliflower florets

Optional toppings - granola, chopped dark chocolate, berries, coconut, peanut butter

Method

  1. Prepare your toppings (cut up fruit, get out the granola and other toppings).

  2. To a high speed blender, add 1 cup of almond milk and 2 tablespoons of ground flax. Blend for a few seconds.

  3. Next add 3 T raw cacao powder, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1 T maple syrup, 2 frozen bananas, and 1 cup cauliflower florets.

  4. Blend thoroughly. I have a vitamix and I have to use the tamper and add a splash of almond milk on the top to get it going. All blenders are a little different. If you do not have a high speed blender like a Vitamin or Blendtec, you may have to add more almond milk to get it to blend. If it gets too runny, you can always put it in a container and place it in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up before you eat it.

  5. Add some granola or other toppings to the bottom of two bowls. Add the smoothie mixture, and then add any toppings you like. Enjoy immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you do not have ground flax, you can quickly make your own ground flax. Add 2 tablespoons of whole flax seeds to your high speed blender and blend until they are ground into a meal. Then add your almond milk and other ingredients. You could also substitute ground chia seeds.
