If smoothies make you think of summer berries and fruits, here’s a seasonal option for your autumn breakfast or snacking pleasure. Do you like pumpkin pie? Or sweet potatoes? Does fall inspire you to fill up on squash? Then this is the smoothie for you — it’s one part dessert, one part healthy and three parts delicious!
Put the following ingredients in your blender.
1 ripe banana, sliced or in sections (use frozen banana slices for a thicker smoothie)
1 apple, cored and sliced
1/2–3/4 cup roasted squash or baked sweet potato (completely cooled & chilled)
2 tablespoons uncooked whole oats
2 tablespoons plain greek-style yogurt
2 tablespoons shelled hemp seeds (also called hemp hearts)
Ground cinnamon to taste (at least 1/2 teaspoon)
1/2 tablespoon salmon or flaxseed oil
8–12 ounces of almond milk (can substitute another type of milk or non-dairy beverage)
Blend thoroughly. (The best way to judge is when the apple pieces are completely incorporated.)
