  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup frozen cauliflower florets* (see notes below)
  • 1/2 cup frozen banana

Notes

*Notes To prep the cauliflower, fill the bottom of a large pot with 2 inches of water, add a steamer basket and bring the water to boil. Lower the heat to medium, add the cauliflower and cover. Steam for 7 to 9 minutes, until lightly steamed but still firm and crunchy (you don’t want them to be fully cooked and soft). Transfer the steamed cauliflower to a parchment-lined baking sheet and allow to cool completely. Place in the freezer and freeze for 1 to 2 hours. Remove the tray from the freezer and transfer the frozen cauliflower to a reusable freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
