Total Time:
20 mins
4 1/2 cups


  • 1 ½ cup small fresh cauliflower florets

  • 2 cup frozen raspberries*

  • 1 ½ cup frozen unsweetened whole strawberries*

  • 1 red sweet pepper, seeded and cut into strips

  • 1 6 ounce carton strawberry Greek yogurt

  • 2 tablespoon strawberry preserves (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan cook cauliflower in enough boiling water to cover, about 10 minutes or until very tender. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool quickly.

  2. In a blender combine cauliflower and the remaining ingredients. Cover and blend until very smooth, stopping and scraping sides of blender as needed.

  3. Pour into tall glasses. Serve immediately.


If you have fresh berries that you want to use, spread them in a shallow baking pan and freeze 1 hour before using.

To Make Ahead

Prepare smoothies as directed. Transfer to an airtight freezer container. Cover and chill up to 3 days or freeze up to 6 months. If frozen, thaw in the refrigerator before serving. Stir before serving.
