The secret ingredient in this creamy and thick smoothie bowl is frozen cauliflower. 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.

Blend spinach and almond milk. Puree until smooth.
Add cauliflower, sliced frozen banana, almond butter, and maple syrup. Blend until smooth.
Scrape down the sides of the blender if it seems to be getting stuck. The mixture will be thicker than a typical smoothie, but if your blender is having trouble, stop and add a little more almond milk, if needed. Feel free to double the recipe to make blending easier too.
Serve by pouring blended mixture into a bowl. Top with ¼ cup (125mL) diced green apple and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Enjoy!
To lower the natural sugar in this smoothie, omit the maple syrup or swap 1 banana with ½ cup frozen cauliflower.
Swap the green apple with the apple of your choice.
To make this recipe nut free, swap in oat, rice or soy milk for the almond milk and the almond butter with 1 tablespoon of hemp hearts or chia seeds.
