  • 1 cup frozen cauliflower
  • ½ cup black beans
  • 1-2 medjool dates pitted

  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. 
    1 frozen banana, 1 cup frozen cauliflower, ½ cup black beans, 1-2 medjool dates, 1 cup oat milk, 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pour into a glass and sprinkle hemp seeds over the top if desired. Serve immediately.


  • Using 2 dates makes this smoothie very sweet. I prefer just one, but if you're accustomed to a sweeter drink or your banana isn't very sweet, you can go for two.
  • You can't taste the frozen cauliflower at all! It adds thickness and a good amount of dietary fiber to the smoothie.
  • You can't taste the black beans, I promise!
  • This makes one LARGE smoothie for a hungry person, or two smaller snack-sized smoothies.
  • Nutrition values are an estimate only!
