Creamy Peanut Butter Butternut Squash Smoothie

Creamy Peanut Butter Butternut Squash Smoothie

Butternut squash in a smoothie? Sounds weird- but trust me! I love steaming and freezing butternut squash for smoothies. Adds a great boost of nutrition and thickness to the smoothie without a big dose of sugar. I buy pre-cut frozen butternut squash from Whole Foods or wherever I can find it. This recipe is one of my favorites yet! I have used both peanut butter and cashew butter and love it both ways. You need to try this one!

*Tip: let the butternut squash cool completely after steaming before putting in the freezer. 

Recipe

Serves 1

Ingredients

1 cup dairy free milk (almond, coconut, or cashew milk)

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen butternut squash 

1 tbsp chia seeds

1/4 large avocado (fresh or frozen)

1 tbsp peanut or cashew butter

1 scoop collagen or vanilla protein powder 

1 tbsp coconut oil (I use Bulletproof Brain Octane- buy on Amazon)

Dash of cinnamon 

Optional: Ashwaganda and Maca Root powder (adaptogenic herbs I use for energy and stress response)

Blend and add your favorite toppings! I love blueberries, low sugar granola, and extra nut butter.
