Too bland

Add a little mustard as this will enhance the flavour. And instead of using milk, try water or vegetable stock; it's not as sickly.

Not tasty enough for me, and did not like the florets being undercooked, think adding some sauted onions may be good and add the florets to the stalk and blend.
