I’ve teamed up with holistic nutrition expert, Alexa Gray, to bring you healthy alternatives to your favorite holiday treats. Enjoy![/tps_header]

(Difficulty: 3)

Ingredients

1 head of cauliflower
1 large clove of garlic, chopped into small pieces
2 tablespoon of oil (grass-fed butter, ghee or olive oil)
Salt
Pepper
2 tablespoons of milk (for dairy-free guests, use unsweetened almond milk)

Directions

  • Wash and chop cauliflower from its stem and chop the rest into small florets.
  • Put the pieces of cauliflower into a pot and cover with water.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer.
  • Cover for about 15 minutes or until cauliflower is cooked all the way through.
  • Drain and place into your food processor (I prefer to use a Vitamix).
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend to your desired consistency.
  • If you are struggling to blend, simply add more milk or water.
