Welcome to the Spring series of recipes with Holistic Health Coach Kaitlyn Cashmere. Check out her past recipes for Live Planted here.
Recently, I’ve noticed an Instagram trend with smoothies- less fruit, more vegetables. As a self-proclaimed vegetable enthusiast, I love it!
I’m now in the habit of adding frozen cauliflower to just about every smoothie. This one is no exception, and you won’t even notice the extra vegetables hiding in this delicious spring smoothie.
It’s thick and creamy, thanks to our banana, cauliflower and avocado. Yet also light and refreshing with a touch of mint. And let’s not forget the added protein we get from the addition of sweet peas. It’s spring in a glass!
