Adding veggies to our morning smoothies is old news – spinach and kale are MVPs in our smoothie game. But it’s time to change out the roster and tap into talent that might have to compete for the illustrious title of rookie of the year – cauliflower and zucchini!

 

The cauliflower in this smoothie will up the vitamin C, B and fiber levels while dishing out a dose of serious antioxidants. The zucchini is a great replacement for additional bananas which can add unnecessary sugar. With the zukes you get the texture without the glucose spike.  The blueberries, bananas and dates balance it out for a delicious and nutritious addition to your blending book!

-          1 cup frozen blueberries

-          1 banana, peeled

-          ½ small zucchini, chopped and frozen

-          1 tsp ground cinnamon
