Vegan Smoothie Banana Buzz

What if I don’t like bananas in the Banana Buzz Vegan Smoothie?

That’s totally ok! One of my family members absolutely detests bananas, so I figured out the perfect substitute. Frozen cauliflower gives smoothies that thick creamy consistency, without the banana flavour taking over. As a bonus, you even get some veggies in your morning plant-based smoothie.

For every half a frozen banana sub in 3/4 cup of frozen cauliflower

Can I substitute decaf coffee beans in smoothies?

Absolutely! You will still get that delicious coffee flavour without the jolt of caffeine and can still enjoy the Banana Buzz Smoothie. 

Is it healthy to add coffee beans or coffee grounds to a smoothie?

Absolutely! Although you want to make sure that it is finely ground or the smoothie will be gritty. Freshly ground coffee, or espresso, is packed with antioxidants and caffeine so you don’t need much to get the boost you usually get from the brewed version.
