butternut squash smoothie
Adding squash to your smoothie may not be the first thing you think of, but trust us, it works. It’s definitely a bit more savory than your typical smoothie, however, and is best as lunch or dinner.
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1 cup roasted butternut squash purée (see sidebar)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
- 1/2-1 cup almond milk
Place all ingredients in a blender, starting with 1/2 cup almond milk. Process until thick and creamy. Add additional almond milk if smoothie is too thick and blend until desired thickness.
Makes 1 smoothie.
