A Healthy Alternative to Mac and Cheese

INGREDIENTS:

2/3 cup grated 2% shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 block 1/3 less fat cream cheese

2/3  cup 2% milk

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 16 oz. package frozen cauliflower

I've been trying to get my kids to eat healthier. I have found that the best way to do that is to find alternatives to what they already eat that are healthier. Here is one of those.

In a small pot, add 2/3 cup 2% shredded cheddar cheese, 1/4 block 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and 2/3 cup 2% milk.

Stir constantly over medium heat until combined. Set aside.

Boil one 16 oz. package of frozen cauliflower (you don't even need to thaw it) in a medium sized pot that has been salted with 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Cook until soft enough to pierce easily with a fork.

Strain the cauliflower.

Chop the cauliflower.

Mix them together.

My kids ate it up. They didn't even realize it wasn't mac and cheese until I told them.
