Glowed-Up Spiced Butternut Squash Smoothie

 butternut squash smoothie  Spiced Butternut Squash Sm

The air is getting far too chilly, yet my smoothie cravings are real, so making a seasonal smoothie is the only solution. My new obsession is this plant-based, gluten-free, and paleo super anti-inflammatory spiced butternut squash smoothie for those days when you're all about glowing up your morning. I’ve had this probably 3 times in the past week alone and am completely hooked. It’s great for giving a boost of vitamins in these winter months, yet tastes exactly like eating a spiced pie for breakfast!

You can enjoy this vibrant smoothie on it's own or become a true smoothie pro and enjoy it in jars or bowls. Lucky you, I'm going to show you how to do both. You're welcome :)

RECIPE (Serves 1)

  4. - 2 tablespoons almond, cashew, or coconut yogurt

  5. - teaspoon almond butter (optional)

  6. - 1/2 cup almond milk or oat milk

  7. - 1/2 teaspoon organic ground turmeric

  8. - 1/4 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon

  9. - 1/8 teaspoon organic ground cardamom

  10. - 1/4 teaspoon reishi (optional)

  11. - 1/4 inch fresh ginger, peeled

  12. - 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  13. - 1 tablespoon ground flax seed

  14. Add-On Option 1 - Smoothie Jar

  15. - 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  16. - 2 tablespoons plant-based yogurt

  17. - 1/4 cup almond milk or oat milk

  18. - 1/4 cup your favorite granola

  19. - almond butter

  20. - rose petals

  21. - orange zest

  22. Add-On Option 2 - Smoothie Bowl

  23. - your favorite granola

  24. - coconut chips

  25. - rose petals

  26. - fresh blueberries

  27. - wild honey

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. To make the smoothie, simply add all ingredients from butternut squash to ground flax seed in a powerful blender and blend until combined.

SMOOTHIE JAR METHOD

  1. Start by adding about 1/4 cup of your favorite granola to the bottom of a glass or jar. Next, add the chia pudding layer. To make this, combine chia seeds, plant-based yogurt, and almond or oat milk in a separate small bowl. Stir to combine and wait a few minutes for the chia to absorb the liquid before adding the chia pudding on top of the granola. Next, add the butternut smoothie to the rim. Top with a bit of extra yogurt, some granola, orange zest, rose petals (because we fun!) and drip almond butter on the sides with a frosting applicator or fork. Oggle, then enjoy!

  2. Smoothie Bowl Method

  3. Load the whole butternut squash smoothie into a bowl, then top with subsequent half moon-shaped layers of toppings. Start with the granola, then add the coconut chips, rose petals, blueberries, and a drizzle of honey and voila!
