The use of cauliflower in dishes has risen in popularity over the years thanks to its incredible versatility. From cauliflower rice to cauliflower puree, this white vegetable can be used in endless, creative ways. We’ve used it in yet another unconventional way – in a smoothie!
Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy, right? However…
Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this true story…
Cauliflower is not only versatile, it is more importantly an incredible source of nutrition. Though it is often overlooked in favor of it’s green cousin broccoli, cauliflower has just as much to offer in terms of nutrients for the body.
A one-cup serving of cauliflower contains:
- 29 calories
- 73% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C
- 19% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin K
- 15% of the daily recommended amount of folate
- 12% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin B6
- 11% of the daily recommended amount of fiber
- 9% of the daily recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids
And that’s just a few of the key nutrients in a one-cup serving! This can easily be doubled when using cauliflower in a recipe such as a cauliflower mash or cauliflower rice.
Health Benefits of Cauliflower
Due to its immense nutrient profile, cauliflower provides many important health benefits.
Similar to broccoli, cauliflower has been shown to contain compounds that inhibit the early growth of cancer – stalling it from developing further. Studies have demonstrated that cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables may stop the development of carcinogenesis, thus halting tumors from further growth.
Inflammation is the root cause of nearly all chronic diseases today. Rich in antioxidants and other compounds that are anti-inflammatory, cauliflower can help to fight free radicals in the body. Antioxidants such as beta-carotene, quercetin and kaempferol all help to reduce oxidative stress within the body, thus reducing overall inflammation and related diseases.
Fights Heart Disease
It is well documented that prolonged high levels of inflammation in the body are directly connected with heart disease, stroke, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Cauliflower’s rich nutrient profile – specifically vitamin K, vitamin C, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids help to regulate the inflammation in the body and reduce plaque build up in the vessels and arteries, thus reducing the chances for high blood pressure and other inflammation-related illnesses.
About this Smoothie
Though cauliflower can be enjoyed many ways, the best way to ensure that you are receiving all of its benefits is to consume it in its raw state – which is why we love adding it to smoothies such as the one below. Consuming cauliflower raw keeps its nutrient profile in tact, while steaming or roasting the vegetable can actually destroy some of the nutrients.
Freezing raw cauliflower not only allows it to be used as an ice cube in smoothies but it also prevents the vegetable from going bad. Freeze the florets on a baking sheet first to ensure that they don’t stick together before tossing them into a freezer safe container.
Fresh strawberries are also added to this smoothie for sweetness and added nutrition while chia seeds provide a good amount of heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Enjoy this smoothie as a superfood-packed breakfast or even a delicious snack!
Strawberry Cauliflower Smoothie
- ¾ cup frozen cauliflower florets
- 1 cup strawberries, chopped
- 1 banana
- 1 ½ cups almond milk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth.

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.
Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.
Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
