    Fudgy Chocolate Milkshake

    In the perfect game of hide-and-seek, you’d never imagine that this thick and creamy smoothie contains cauliflower. We’re willing to bet on that. Along with avocado and banana, frozen cauliflower simply creates a fudgy body. Dare we say, this delicious smoothie could stand in for dessert. If you wish, you can reduce some of the liquid and serve as a smoothie bowl with your favourite toppings.

    Tip: Beyond great taste, there is another good reason to make your smoothies on the thick side. A British study found that subjects perceived a drink with the thickness of a milkshake to be more filling than one that was more juicelike in consistency, even when they contained the same number of calories.
