This easy and delicious smoothie recipe makes one big serving, or two small servings. Enjoy in the morning for an energizing start to your day!


  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen cauliflower florets*
  • 2 big handfuls baby kale
  • 1 teaspoon green tea matcha powder
  • 2 scoops collagen protein powder (I used Equip Foods)


  • Combine the water, hemp seeds, banana, cauliflower florets, kale, matcha powder, and collagen powder in the base of a high-speed blender.
  • Process on high until the ingredients are thoroughly combined, about 45 seconds.
  • Serve immediately.


*I like to steam my cauliflower florets for about 5 minutes in a steamer basket before freezing. This helps reduce any bloating I experience from consuming the cauliflower. Feel free to use raw frozen cauliflower florets if you prefer.

*For the two-tone effect of this smoothie, I left out the matcha and kale and poured a little at the bottom of the glass before finishing off the recipe.
