The Holiday Nog Smoothie Bowl Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
2 large very ripe bananas
12 oz. (340 grams) of extra firm silken tofu
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of fine sea salt
2 tablespoons of almond butter
4 large medjood dates, pitted
2 cups of cauliflower florets, steamed and frozen
1Cauliflower that is slightly thawed produces a creamier texture when blended so just let it sit on the counter while you gather all of your other ingredients.
2Add the bananas and silken tofu to the blender container, along with the vanilla, apple cider vinegar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and almond butter, followed by the dates and the cauliflower.
3Securely attach the lid to your container and blend util creamy, starting on low speed and working up to medium speed. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides of the container or use the tamper (with a Vitamix) to push the food down and around toward the blade. This will take about a minute or more, depending on what type of blender you are using.
4Scoop the creamy vanilla and spice mixture which will be the consistency of loose custard into three bowls and top with a sprinkling of nutmeg.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
