This Maple Cauliflower Smoothie bowl is a great way to add in more plant-based nutrients to your morning jam. I remember the first time I saw Lee from America using cauliflower in her smoothies and I was like– genius! It’s totally a winner and you must try this smoothie bowl!
I’ve always liked a little crunch to my meals, so I recommend topping with diced apples, homemade granola or toasted almonds. Do you have your own favs? If you’re new to smoothie bowls, let me show you the simple art of making one…
How to Make a Smoothie Bowl
A smoothie bowl is literally just a thicker version of a smoothie, served in a bowl and topped with goodness. You can take any of our smoothie recipes and transform them into a bowl by reducing the amount of liquid you use.
Let’s break that down:
A smoothie usually has 1 cup of liquid per serving. A smoothie bowl has about 3/4 cup of liquid per serving. Here’s how I did it for this Cauliflower Smoothie Bowl recipe per serving.
- Blend 3/4 cup liquid with 1 cup of leafy greens
- Add in 1 cup frozen fruit and frozen veggies.
- If your blender has a hard time blending it up, use the tamper to activate the blend
- Pour into a bowl
- Top with your favorite toppings such as granola, diced fruit, and nuts
We advise using only plant-based ingredients to get the best results— more energy, less bloating, glowing skin and more. By swapping milk or yogurt for an almond milk or cashew milk, you could make a huge improvement in your overall health.

If you’ve always felt that dairy might mess you up or be causing you health issues, I suggest an elimination diet. With that, you remove dairy from your diet for at least 7 days and pay attention to the results. Yet I know how we all LOVE creamy smoothies— I’m right there! That’s why this Cauliflower Smoothie Bowl is the one for you to try today. I can’t wait for you to try it!

Frozen cauliflower is one of my favorite veggies to blend up— esp in this Cauliflower smoothie bowl. It makes the smoothie super creamy and you can’t even taste it! Not that I don’t like cauliflower, I just know it can be a scary smoothie ingredient until you give it a try!
- 1 cup (250mL) spinach
- 3/4 cup (186mL) almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 cup (250mL) cauliflower florets
- 1 ripe banana, sliced and frozen
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/2 cup (125mL) diced green apple
- Pinch of ground cinnamon
- Place spinach and almond milk in blender. Puree until smooth.
- Add cauliflower, sliced frozen banana, almond butter, and maple syrup. Blend until smooth.
- The mixture will be thicker than a typical smoothie, but if your blender is having trouble, stop and scrape down the sides, and add a little more almond milk, if needed. Feel free to double the recipe to make blending easier too.
- To serve, divide the smoothie between two bowls. Top one with 1/4 cup (125mL) diced green apple and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Eat for breakfast.
- Place the other bowl in the fridge or freezer and top with remaining diced apples and cinnamon when ready to eat lunch.
