Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen riced cauliflower

  • 3/4 cup cold Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original almondmilk
  • 3/4 cup cold brew coffee
  • 2 TBSP cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 TBSP maca powder

optional add-ins

  • protein powder of choice*
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2 cup oats 

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in blender, starting with frozen cauliflower and dates so they’re at the base of the blender, then follow with almond butter, liquid and powders.
  2. Blend on high until smooth. Adjust liquid to desired thickness – see notes on adding more liquid if desired.
  3. Enjoy!

Recipes Notes:

Recipe easily cut in half for 1 serving. 

If you’d like a thicker smoothie, reduce almondmilk and cold brew to 1/2 cup each (1 cup total). If you’d like a thinner smoothie, add about 2 full cups liquid.

*If using a sweetened protein powder, you can probably cut back to 1-2 medjool dates per 2 servings.

If you don’t have dates but like banana, use 1 medium banana, pre-sliced and frozen. (The riper the banana, the sweeter the drink but also the more banana flavor will come through slightly.) OR use maple syrup, to taste.

Nutrition approximate; not including protein powder. Calculated using 2 Medjool dates. If using 1 medium frozen banana,
