A Hidden Veggie Breakfast Smoothie that packs seven different fruits and vegetables into one gluten-free, vegan meal.

Luckily, sometime between the start of the second trimester and the beginning of the third, my veggie cravings returned.  It certainly was not an overnight change.  It took some coaxing and experimenting.  One of those big experiments was figuring out various ways to pack vegetables into my meals without noticing them.  And of course everyone knows that the absolute best way to do that is in a smoothie.

    This looks good! I'm curious, what type of blender/food processor do you use? The carrots must be tough, but I've never tried before. Also what is MCT oil? Thanks :)

      I use a Vitamix, which can basically handle just about anything, including raw veggies! MCT oil is essentially just a really good source of healthy fats to help provide energy and maintain fullness. It is certainly optional, though!

    I love adding veggies to my smoothies - but haven't tried making one with cauliflower. Next time! #client

      It seems to be "all the rage" lately, so I thought I'd give it a try. I love the creaminess that it adds to smoothies!

    I keep hoping that one o' these days, it'll finally be warm enough for me to start doing my breakfast smoothies again!! *-* I love how many veggies you managed to pack into this smoothie!

      It definitely feels like smoothie weather around here. It has been SO hot in Iowa the past couple of days!
