We’ve discovered the power of fruit to cover vegetables!  🙂  Honestly, it’s a lot of vegetables.  Here’s our new smoothie recipe.

  • 1 cup of cauliflower – raw (I use frozen because it’s cheaper and just thaw it out quickly in hot water)
  • 2 cups of sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of plain, non-fat yogurt
  • 4 oz. skim milk
  • 1 scoop of chocolate-flavored protein (we like IDS Belgian Chocolate)

Liquify in your blender and drink up!  On the portion control diet it equals 1 veggie, 1 fruit, 1 dairy, and 1 protein. 

Warning: This is a lot of smoothie!  I drink it in two sessions, normally half for breakfast and half for snack.  Just stick the blender cup in the frig until you’re ready for the second half and then give it a quick whirl on the blender before you finish it off!

For the boys, I just replace the plain yogurt with vanilla and the protein with a banana!  They LOVE it!
