Strawberry Mango Cauliflower: 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup plain yogurt or nondairy milk, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raw cauliflower, 1/2 cup frozen mango, 1-2 tablespoons hemp seeds, and 2 tablespoons rolled oats.

Strawberry Banana Nut: 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup plain yogurt or nondairy milk, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raw cauliflower, 1/2 frozen banana, 2 tablespoons cashews, and 1 teaspoon chia seeds.

Strawberry Cauliflower: 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup plain yogurt or nondairy milk, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raw cauliflower, 2 tablespoons rolled oats.

Strawberry Banana Spinach: 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup plain yogurt or nondairy milk, 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter (or almond butter), 1/2 cup baby spinach, 1/2 frozen banana.

This smoothie is best served right after making, but you can freeze small portions of leftovers in an ice cube tray. Once frozen, transfer to a zip top bag and store for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the fridge or at room temperature and shake or stir before serving.

Avoid the urge to pack a smoothie with more ingredients than are called for to avoid it becoming too thick.

Use Greek yogurt instead of regular if desired for added protein.

Use an equal amount of nondairy milk or yogurt to make these dairy-free.
