You’ll never believe how well frozen cauliflower hides in this creamy smoothie that tastes like a peanut butter milkshake! The cauliflower adds nutrition, of course, but it also helps make this dairy-free smoothie rich and creamy. You’ve got to try it before you judge it.

Some of my other hidden veggie smoothies have been a big hit at home and on the web, such as my dairy-free Raspberry Cream Smoothie that includes frozen zucchini chunks. 

In preparation of this cauliflower smoothie, I like to lightly steam my cauliflower florets before freezing them. This extra step helps reduce any bloating from the cruciferous vegetable, and that’s a must for my sensitive tummy. Feel free to simply freeze raw cauliflower florets if you prefer.

Recipe Steps

You won’t believe how easy it is to throw together this cauliflower smoothie recipe. It will likely take you less than 10 minutes from start to finish.

Step One

Combine the almond milk, frozen cauliflower florets, and other ingredients in the base of a high speed blender.

As always, please do see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Two

Blend your smoothie on high for about 30-45 seconds, or until the texture is thick and creamy. It’s okay if there are small pieces of date that don’t get completely blended, but you do want to make sure that you blend the cauliflower florets completely.

Step Three

Serve your cauliflower smoothie immediately.

How do you steam cauliflower?

You can either use a steamed on the stovetop of the microwave. If using a steamer, then you should steam the cauliflower florets for about 5 minutes. If you use the microwave, you can steam them for about 2 minutes.

How do you make a smoothie thick and creamy?

You need to freeze your ingredients ahead of time. Another way to get thick and creamy smoothies is to use a high-speed blender. I recommend a Blendtec or a Vitamix.
