1/2 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 small butternut squash, peeled and cubed
1/4 c water
1 cup canned full-fat coconut milk (with no fillers or gums!)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch of sea salt
1 scoop grass-fed collagen peptides
1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
Topping ideas (mix it up for variety!): coconut milk, coconut cream, coconut yogurt, shredded coconut, dried fruit, fresh berries, lemon zest, sliced fresh fruit, pomegranate seeds, tigernut flakes, chopped or sliced nuts (omit for AIP), maple syrup
Put cauliflower, butternut squash and water into your instant pot or pressure cooker. Set to high pressure for 5 minutes and lock the lid, making sure the release valve is set to “sealing.”
Once the cooking cycle is complete, let your pressure cooker naturally release for 10 minutes. Then, using a towel or wooden spoon so you don’t burn yourself, open the release valve to release all the pressure. Once the pressure pin drops, carefully open pressure cooker lid.
Stovetop method: Simmer cauliflower, butternut squash and water in stock pot over medium heat until soft, stirring occasionally.
Add coconut milk, spices, collagen peptides and maple syrup (if using), and use an immersion blender to blend all ingredients until smooth. Alternatively, let cauliflower and butternut squash cool slightly, and then add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, being careful not to burn yourself.
Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Saves well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for a few months! Simply scoop out a portion, warm in the microwave or on the stove and top with your favorite toppings!
