Ways to “Shake Up” this Smoothie
This is a super-creamy and silky smoothie, but if you want some texture and crunch, you can add a variety of different ingredients for extra flavor and intensity. You can add a date for additional sweetness, as noted in the recipe, but here are some other ways you can customize this smoothie!
- Small frozen banana instead of frozen cauliflower rice
- Full scoop of Pumpkin Spice or full scoop of Vanilla
- Cashew or oat milk instead of almond
- Add cacao nibs or unsweetened coconut flakes for texture
How to Make this Smoothie
Make this shake in a matter of minutes by combining all the ingredients into a blender and blending on a medium-to-high setting until everything is smooth and thoroughly-mixed. If you choose to add a date, I recommend giving it a rough chop before adding it into the blender. Once you reach a creamy consistency, just pour your smoothie into a glass or shaker cup and enjoy your nourishing fall treat!
