Cardamom Pear Smoothie

This vegan cardamom pear smoothie is just as soothing and satisfying as it is nourishing. Ripe bartlett pear is blended with frozen cauliflower florets (see this post for more information about this surprising smoothie addition), almond milk, Medjool dates, almond butter, a splash of vanilla, and a dash of cardamom. The result is a creamy, nutty, and subtly sweetened smoothie that energizes.
