Sneaky Cruciferous Vegetable
From grain-free pizza crust to buffalo wings, it doesn’t seem like there’s an end to what this versatile vegetable can do. Now, you can sneak in some cauliflower to make a healthy ice cream, too. But don’t worry, no one will have to keep this ingredient a secret. Not only is this an easy-to-make ice cream recipe, the special feature of our favorite cruciferous vegetable makes it a powerhouse when it comes to nutritional benefits.
One of the great qualities the cauliflower has is that it can be a low-calorie substitute for high-calorie foods like rice and flour. Pair this with its high fiber content, and you end up with properties that may aid in weight loss. With fiber slowing digestion and promoting feelings of fullness, you’re more likely to reduce calorie intake throughout the day, which plays a role in weight control.
Check out these other benefits cauliflower has to offer:
- Good source of antioxidants

- Boosts heart health
- Boosts brain health
- Great low-carb alternative to grains and legumes
