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.)

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)
  • 3/4 cup cooked butternut squash (mashed*)
  • 1/2 ripe pear (peeled and cored)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Blend spinach and water until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth.

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?

      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

    I’m so glad I stumbled onto this recipe today. I have been missing my green smoothies, but I cannot get over drinking a cold drink when it’s winter.

    I found a smoothie recipe using mangos and rolled oats. I can’t seem to find it again. Could you please give me the recipe.

  7. Meg says:

    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?
