This smoothie is the answer for all of you who are craving fall even though it’s still 80 degrees outside. A nice cool smoothie packed with the warming spices of autumn. Fall flavor in a summery glass. Perfect for the end of summer.
I first made this smoothie a few weeks ago when I’d cooked and pureed a gigantic butternut squash only to find out Luke was done with purees.
I was just trying to use up the puree then, but I’ve had it several times since because it’s that good. I may like it even better than the pumpkin pie smoothie, which is one of my fall favorites.
This butternut squash smoothie is the perfect way to squeeze extra vegetable servings into your day. Butternut squash is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and manganese, and a good source of vitamin E, iron, calcium, and folate. That it tastes good is just a bonus.
If you are cooking butternut squash anyway, make some extra so you can give this wonderful fall-flavored smoothie a try. Or you can cheat and buy the canned kind. That will work, too. Either way, make this smoothie a part of your end-of-summer days. You’ll be glad you did.Print
