"Found in a BHGdotcom article titled "Creative Cauliflower Recipes" by Sheena Chihak - "Cauliflower is making a comeback! No longer is it a bland, boiled side dish. Old-school cauliflower has been reinvented" ... "Does this seem too good to be true? It's hard to believe that 1 1/2 cups of cauliflower hides in this delicious, sweet smoothie." It hides so well that your kids will never find it! (Yield = 6 6-ounce servings). Enjoy!"

In a small saucepan, cook cauliflower in enough boiling water to cover, about 10 min or until very tender. Drain & rinse w/cold water to cool quickly. Pat dry or twist in a clean kitchen towel to remove any excess moisture.

Step 2

In a blender, combine cooked cauliflower, watermelon, strawberries, yogurt & strawberry preserves, if using. Cover & blend until very smooth (stopping & scraping sides of blender as needed). Serve immediately.
