Cruciferous Chocolate Brownie Smoothie

So forgive me for not taking a picture of this tasty treat. It gets consumed way too fast. Instead here is a lovely shot of cauliflower.

Yup- that’s the secret healthy ingredient in this smoothie. You’d never know it though.

Caulflower has never been my favorite. It just doesn’t get me that excited. I know people like to have mashed cauliflower or roasted cauliflower, and cauliflower is frequently the vegan option at many non-vegan restaurants- bleh.

I have to sneak mine in so that I don’t get any of that yucky cauli-taste, but still can reap the benefits of eating this veg super rich in vitamins.

So behold-
