Butternut Squash Vega Protein Smoothie. V & GF.
I recently fell in love with butternut squash – clearly I had issues. I always tolerated it, but never really gravitated to it. This fall… I’m now crazy for it. I’ve been roasting up all of ours from our garden and had about 2 cups mashed leftover from a food job. I was thinking hummus but then recalled my love of smoothies, I haven’t really been drinking them lately, and got to work immediately on creating this recipe. And my goal: be fall inspired and NO bananas or dates.
Butternut squash is high in Vitamin A, C, iron and potassium. Great for a post workout meal. This smoothie is creamy, slightly sweet and packed with protein. Think of it as fall in a glass. If you need a break from pumpkin or PSL’s this may do the trick! Rich and creamy… reminiscent of a decadent dessert. Yum!
