Purple Haze Smoothie (Bowl) Recipe

Imagine my delight when I blended up my Purple Haze smoothie and this gorgeous (or should I say regal?) color appeared. It was almost too pretty to eat – *almost*! I created the recipe for the Purple Haze smoothie while visiting my  mom in Kansas – she loves when I recipe test, ha ha. Safe to say, she gave it a two thumbs up and the go ahead to add to our recent June 21-Day Meal Prep Challenge.

Probably one of the most asked questions from our Challenge participants is why did I add cauliflower to the Purple Haze smoothie? The answer is simple: cauliflower adds an amazing creaminess to the smoothie and is chalk full of vitamins and minerals. According to livestrong.com, cauliflower contains almost as much Vitamin C as an orange (seriously!) and almost as much potassium as a banana with a fifth of the calories. Of course cauli is rich in fiber as well, and that will keep you feeling full.

Quick tip: If you have extra smoothie mixture, freeze it into popsicle molds – makes a great treat for a hot day! We think you are definitely going to have Purple Haze on your brain. Ha!
