Better than Mashed Potatoes April 7, 2014

Better than Mashed Potatoes, Honolulu, Hawaii

At IMUA, our wellness coach enjoys empowering clients with recipes and ideas that allow for a tasty alternative to traditionally not-so-healthy meals, such as creamy mashed potatoes. We want you to enjoy a healthier alternative that won’t leave you feeling bloated, fatigued and guilty, an alternative that will make you feel alive and energized and great about your body.

So, today I want to share one of those alternatives with you. Instead of mashed potato try…



  • 1 head cauliflower
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


Cut your cauliflower into small pieces. Steam the cauliflower until tender (about 10 min). Place cauliflower in a blender or food processor. Add dairy-free milk, salt, and pepper while blending until smooth. Remove from blender and put into a serving bowl.

Chef’s tips:

*Make sure that the cauliflower is soft before removing from steamer. If it’s not soft, it won’t mash nicely, so rather steam for longer.

*Serving suggestion: healthy home-made mushroom gravy, big salad and a piece of clean, lean protein.

What else is there to enjoy about this recipe? Maybe the high levels of disease-fighting plant sterols, fiber, anti-oxidants, vitamin K, folate and potassium in Cauliflower– to name but a few.
