Prepare for Your Mind to Be BLOWN!
|Behold: Cauliflower Chocolate Shake|
That’s right folks….SHAKE UP NOVEMBER with a creamy, nutritious cauliflower chocolate shake! Consider me to be the biggest sceptic ever when it comes to vegetables and chocolate in the same sentence. Heck, it even offends me when people have the audacity to choose fruit as their mix-in of choice when they go to the ice cream/frozen yogurt store. I mean, if you’re gonna go; go hard in the paint, right?
Anyway, trust me on this one – upon drinking this you’ll say, “What cauliflower?” Well, actually I’m not so sure about the effects that may occur afterwards – I mean…you may want to have some digestive enzymes on hand just in case cauliflower makes you gassy. 😉
Makes 1 – 20 oz serving
1 serving of chocolate or vanilla protein powder
1 pitted Medjool date
1 – 1.5 cups steamed cauliflower
1 Tablespoon of cacao nibs (I use Navitas brand)
1 Tablespoon hemp seeds (Navitas brand)
1 Tablespoon cacao powder (Navitas brand)
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I prefer Pacific brand)
About 4 oz water and 1 cup of ice
Blend, pour, drink! Perfect to enjoy post workout; or as a meal replacement.
