Warm Green Smoothie: Butternut Pear

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 11.23.2016 | COMMENTS: 12


We love, love, love our warm green smoothie recipes! When the cooler weather hits and you’re not in the mood for a cold green smoothie, this is the perfect solution. Snuggle up to a warm mug and enjoy sipping your leafy greens in style. (Be sure to scroll down and watch our video of how to make this healthy smoothie!)

This recipe includes two of our favorite fall and winter produce: butternut squash and pears. Both are naturally sweet, but we’ve roasted the squash to add even more flavor. (But don’t worry, if you don’t want to take that extra step, you can certainly make this smoothie with steamed or canned butternut puree.)

If you’re a fan of squash pies and soup, you’re likely to love this warm green smoothie. It’s comforting and all the right ways, including knowing that it’s packed with nutrients like loads of vitamin A, dietary fiber, and iron.

Description

Sip on a warm green smoothie when the weather turns chilly. This one features spinach, butternut squash, pear, a hint of spice, and creamy cashew milk.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup cashew milk (warmed)

Instructions

Notes

Note: To roast the butternut squash: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment (baking) paper or foil. Cut a medium butternut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds from each half. Lightly rub the halves with a little oil. Roast cut side down for 20 minutes, turn squash over and roast for 10-20 minutes longer, or until very tender when pierced with the tip of a knife in the thickest part. Let cool slightly before using for this recipe. Store leftovers, wrapped, in the refrigerator.

    Could you use the “soup” setting on the Blendtec and not have to heat separately?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Rachel,

      You could totally use the soup setting on your blender. I would just be careful that it is not too hot when you pour the ingredients into your blender.

      Hope that helps!

    Can you use coconut milk instead of cashew milk? I really like this idea as a lunch time snack. But cashew milk seems to be a bit rare in my neck of the woods

    Love it. I poured it in a bowl and called it breakfast soup! It made me think of another recipe I saw here with raw squash or raw pumpkin? I cant find it? Did I imagine it?
