Recipe Wednesday #7: Squash Smoothie?!
I had a partly eaten banana sitting on the counter after small humans in my household decided only a couple of bites were enough. I also had a bit of squash getting freezer burned in the door shelf of my freezer. Waste not, want not, so into a smoothie it all went.
1 (well, mostly 1) banana
1/4 bag of cubed frozen squash
1/2-1 cup of plain yogurt (sorry, I just dumped some in the blender)
1 raw egg
1 serving probiotic
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon maple sugar
cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to taste
Blend well and enjoy!
It was fine for my tastes, but for a family enjoyment, I would recommend a vanilla yogurt instead of plain.
Squash is very high in Vitamin A, and high in Vitamin C. It also contains Vitamins E, B6, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Thiamin, Niacin, Potassium, Manganese, and Folate.
