Mashed “Potatoes” (makes 4 servings)
- 1 large head cauliflower
- 1/4 cup canned coconut milk (i use raw milk from grassfed cows)
- 2 tablespoons butter (from the same cows, but you could replace this with olive oil)
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Ground black pepper to taste
Place a steamer basket in a large pot with 2″ of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Place the cauliflower in the basket, cover, and steam for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
Remove from heat and drain. In a blender, food processor, or food chopper, combine the cauliflower, milk, butter, salt, and pepper. Blend or process until smooth

Dr Davis provides these additional notes regarding this recipe:
Although not a grain, potatoes yield too many carbohydrates when cooked. This is a problem in your 10-Day Detox because excessive carbohydrates turn off your capacity to lose weight by triggering blood sugar and insulin to high levels. Rather than simply subtracting another common staple from your dinner table, here is a way to not just replace mashed potatoes, but to create something that tastes even better, but with none of the problems. Replace butter with extra-virgin olive oil for a dairy-free version.
Here’s to feeling great!
