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.
