Healthy Smoothies Boost Your Bakery

 
Smoothies are becoming increasingly popular for a reason. They combine healthy ingredients together to create a beverage that not only tastes good but is good for you.
 
As the grab-and-go trend continues to get bigger, smoothies are seen as a convenient option that is still able to provide essential vitamins and minerals. Inclusions such as kale and spinach have added the healthy base for smoothies for a long time, but there is a new food trend that is taking over the smoothie, cauliflower.
 
Cauliflower has seen resurgence as a super food in recent years. The cabbage variety has a wide range of unique health benefits that go beyond its stunted look. Mark Twain once referred to cauliflower as “cabbage with a college education,” and that statement is evidenced by its increased use as a healthy food over the years.
 
Adding frozen cauliflower to smoothies thickens the texture and adds nutrients, and it can’t even be tasted. It is cheap, edible, and provides a major beverage boost.

While many consumers are careful to select organic, local, or non-GMO produce for their smoothies, they're often less choosy about the rest of what goes into their blender.

Elmhurst Milked's new line of vegan nutmilks starts with whole, raw nuts and uses a patented cold milling technique to produce non-dairy milk that contains the full nutrition content of each nut in a flavorful emulsion. Available in almond, walnut, cashew, and hazenut, Elmhurst Milked's nutmilks are an ideal base for any smoothie.

Elmhurst Milked's nutmilks contain up to four times the nut content of other leading nutmilk brands along with all the healthy fats, oils, protein, and micronutrients that are inherent in each nut, according to the company.

Your shop can amplify any smoothie's superfood power by adding a dash of a nutritional booster like Coffee Flour. Coffee Flour is nutrient-dense culinary flour made from dried coffee cherries, the fruit surrounding the coffee bean. It has a subtle, slightly roasted flavor reminiscent of dried fruit.
