Serves 2

Ingredients

1 c. raw cauliflower

1 1/2 c. raw kale or spinach (use dino kale if lower oxalate is needed)

1/2 large frozen* banana

1 1/2 c. frozen* pitted cherries

2 tbsp. raw cashews

2 tsp. cacao nibs (Amazon link for Navitas Cacao Nibs , Thrive Market link for Navitas Cacao Nibs)

3/4 – 1 c. filtered water (depending on desired thickness)

Instructions

Place cauliflower, greens and water in high powered blender and blend until well combined.  Add remaining ingredients to cauliflower, greens & water mixture and blend until very smooth.  Pour into glass cups and serve immediately.  The above picture has been topped with shredded coconut and cacao nibs.

Tidbits

Feel free to adjust the ratios as need for yeast etc. and/or as tolerated!  Cacao does have a glutamate risk, all though substantially lower than processed sources.  While we didn’t tolerate it very well initially, we seem to find we do much better with cacao (not the same as cocoa) nibs over cacao powder.  Additionally, cacao and bananas are pretty much high in everything else- phenols, histamines, etc. so use a little caution if you’re overly sensitive.
