The ultimate smoothie bowl base

October 8, 2018

Author Notes:

As someone who has been making smoothies pretty much every single day of my life for the past 6 years (umm yea…that’s over 2,000 smoothies) I’ve played around with A LOT of recipes. The trick to making a great smoothie is having the right consistency, coldness and flavor combo. The recipe below ticks all the boxes. To keep it low GI, we use half a banana. Adding in the frozen avocado & frozen cauliflower adds a thick creamy texture when it all whips together. This baby is packed with healthy fat and protein to will keep you going through the morning. Makes enough to share, but I tend to be greedy and keep it all to myself!!
