Butternut Squash Smoothie Bowl

Serves 1 5 minute prep time

By Angela Simpson on October 31, 2016

Butternut Squash Smoothie Bowl

Some of fall’s finest produce comes together in this delicious, seasonal butternut squash smoothie bowl. Lightly spiced with cinnamon, ginger and cloves, it makes getting your fruit and veggies in almost effortless.  We even added non-gmo protein powder to make this fruit and veggie blend unstoppable.

For smaller and less powerful blenders, chopping the vegetables into smaller chunks will help them to blend more easily. Out of butternut squash? Sweet potato makes an excellent substitute.  Yes, you can use fresh or frozen butternut squash to make this smoothie, it’s delicious either way.

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop Vanilla Vega® Essentials
  • 1 cup peeled and cubed butternut squash, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 apple, cored
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • Pinch of cloves
  • Optional garnishes: apple slices, dried cranberries and your favorite granola

Preparation

  • Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.

  • Adjust the consistency with a little more almond milk or ice if needed.

  • Pour into a bowl. Top with apples, dried cranberries and granola, and serve with a spoon.
