It's got a great texture, it's good for you, and it's oh-so-unexpected.

I can already guess your reaction when I tell you to add cauliflower to your next smoothie bowl. Cauliflower? In a smoothie?! Really?

But you've got to admit that as far as veggies go, cauliflower is a pretty inoffensive one. It's white, it's relatively bland, and when you whip it up in a smoothie, you can barely taste it. Actually, I'd go so far as to say you can't taste it at all. Besides, the whole fruit smoothie craze has pretty much maxed out at this point, and I have a feeling veggie-based smoothies are the next food trend frontier. Since it may not be long before your go-to drink spot is churning these out by the dozen (and your friends are subsequently Instagramming them like their lives depend on it), you might as well get a head start at home. (FYI, Here's our no-fail formula for whipping up perfect smoothie bowl.)

Plus, as unappetizing as a cauliflower smoothie might sound at first, when you really think about it, the idea of a veggie smoothie really isn't that out-there. You probably already order kale smoothies on the reg, don't you? And occasionally add in some avocado? (Okay, avocado is technically a fruit, but you get the idea.) You've taken the baby steps. Now, take a full leap.

If you're still not convinced, the good news is that this particular recipe does involve some fruit, and there's even a little bit of sweetener in the form of honey.
