- Cold Relief
Steamed then Frozen Cauliflower
Cooked vegetables are much easier on the digestive system compare to the raw ones.
The reasons I freeze cauliflowers
First, frozen fruit and veggies can thicken the texture of a smoothie.
Second, veggies and fruits last longer in the freezer.
Homemade Cashew Milk

Tips on Making a Healthy Breakfast Smoothie
A few main ingredients to make a healthy breakfast smoothie:
To begin with – Vegetables:
Yes, we are talking about sneaking in some vegetables without tasting it really. Also, it is great way to trick your kids, isn’t it?
I usually choose steamed then frozen veggies. They are easier to digest.
Fresh or frozen, fruit of your choice!
Dairy Free Milk
I am not lactose intolerant, but too much dairy does make me feel bloated. To make a palnt based healthy breakfast smoothie, I love using my homemade cashew milk. It is so creamy and nutty.
My go to proteins are:
Vital Protein Collagen Peptides
I usually use the original blue tub or the vanilla one.
Collagen is great for skin, hair, nail and gut health. I love using it in my smoothie and coffee as it doesn’t change the texture of the smoothie.
Plant Based Vegan Protein:
My favorite is Nuzest. I really like this brand because the ingredients are so clean. One of my go to use in my morning smoothie is the original one. The only ONE ingredient is pea protein. There is no filler, or anything that makes me bloated.
Don’t forget Toppings!
Last but not least, you have to put that cherry on top. A smoothie bowl isn’t complete without some crunchy toppings.
My favorite toppings are:
- Coconut flakes
- Cacao Nibs
- More fresh or frozen fruits
Note about Smoothie Texture
I love my breakfast smoothie bowl thick and creamy. In order to achieve thick texture, use very minimum liquid. Blend on low speed first in a a high speed blender (I use Vitamix). Once most big frozen chunks are blended, slowly increase the speed.
Last Note about making a breakfast smoothie HEALTHY
Lastly, (I promise this is my last note) – you do NOT want to overpack your smoothie. I know I talked a lot about how to pack it all in one bowl. But trust me you don’t want to over do it.
Not all the ingredients work well together, in terms of health benefits and flavor profile.
Keep it simple.
