I am a huge fan of smoothies, it's the perfect way to load up on nutrients on the go and I enjoy one almost every single day. The other day I had a bunch of squash left over from dinner the previous night and decided to experiment with it in a smoothie and boy am I glad I did. The texture of the squash lends a wonderful creaminess to the smoothie and it manages to sweeten my smoothie enough to make me skip on the fruits.
Here's two recipes I found to be particularly delish:
Tropical Pumpkin Turmeric Smoothie
2 tbls acorn squash
2 tbls coconut milk (full fat)
1 tbls flax seeds
1 scoop MegaFood Daily Turmeric
1 scoop whey protein
Blend. Top with shredded coconut and chia seeds. Enjoy.
I used my Blendtec as per usual to turn all the ingredients into a smooth creamy smoothie, orange, flax and all. I also added the Megafood Daily Turmeric Booster for its anti-inflammatory properties (especially good after a hard workout), whey for protein and a scoop of Organic Traditions Ashwagandha which is a wonderful plant with adaptogenic properties.
PS. How cute is this bamboo straw?
