Breakfast Smoothie February 20, 2011

Can you guess what the secret ingredient is?

Lots to do today? Power up with a vibrant, nutrient-packed smoothie.

Bananas, strawberries, almond milk, blueberries and…. squash? It may not be the first ingredient that comes to mind when you think of smoothie making but butternut squash (delicious in so many recipes) is actually a great smoothie ingredient. It’s lower in sugar and higher in potassium than many fruits and just half a cup provides more than 100% of the DV for vitamin A.  I like to pair it with strawberries and add cinnamon. You can use it frozen, raw, or cooked.
