Vegan Strawberries and Cream Smoothie

Vegan Strawberries and Cream Veggie-Filled Smoothie

This Vegan Strawberries and Cream Veggie-Filled Smoothie has been my go-to smoothie lately and I’m so excited to finally share this nutritious recipe with you all today! First of all, it tastes so good.  It has sweet fruity strawberry flavor combined with vanilla and that is really all you will taste.  The texture is just beyond creamy and yet it isn’t loaded with any unhealthy ingredients.  The creaminess actually comes from two vegetables and almonds.  I use frozen riced cauliflower and raw peeled zucchini and they both provide a thick and creamy base for the smoothie.  I also use raw blanched slivered almonds for added nutrients and creaminess.  In fact, I found with all the creaminess in this recipe I don’t have to use any milk.  Just water!  It is sweetened naturally with dates and gets flavor from the frozen strawberries and pure vanilla extract.  Strawberries and vanilla will forever be one of my all time favorite flavor combinations that I can never get enough of.

Strawberry Smoothie with Veggies

My kids absolutely love when I make this smoothie and they never detect the vegetables.  In fact they help me back it and think it is hilarious that they cannot taste two vegetables. 

Strawberry Zucchini Smoothie

This smoothie is very satisfying and checks all the boxes for a healthy breakfast: dietary fiber, healthy fats, plant-based protein, fruits and veggies.  If I want to turn it into a smoothie bowl for an even more filling meal then I top it off with my homemade raw creamy almond butter, raspberry chia jam and easy granola.
