Another Here’s the Dish original. While cauliflower may not sound like a likely smoothie ingredient, the strong aroma and taste of raspberry offsets the mild taste and texture of the florets creating a fiber-rich, nutrient-rich fruit and veggie combination.

For more of my favorite complementary fruit & veggie smoothie combos, try my Spiced Sweet Potato Smoothie or my Cherry Zucchini Smoothie. Enjoy!

Ingredients

-1/2 cup frozen raspberries (or frozen mixed berries–including raspberries)
-1/2 cup frozen chopped cauliflower florets

-1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
