Green Velvet Squash n’ Cinnamon Spice Smoothie




A little squash can “squash” out the low energy doldrums! Spice up your day with this green velvet squash and cinnamon spice smoothie!

There are some days when smooth, comforting foods are an absolute necessity. While smoothies are most often on the menu to start my day, it’s a combo like this that delivers the sense of a long-held hug.

A long blast in the blender with extra ice keeps this smoothie cold while still giving the texture of liquid velvet. Once you taste test this for yourself, I am confident you’ll know what I mean and may want it two days in a row (maybe even three). Just garnish it differently so you can keep things new.

Besides all these great yum-factor features – knowing this smoothie is good for me adds to the comfort factor. The warming, fragrant seasoning also delivers bonus benefits of balancing blood sugar, boosting the immune system, and aiding in digestion. While this smoothie is fabulous all year round, it delivers a sense of indulgence while supporting your New Year’s resolutions for a healthier diet. Here is to the most awesome you in 2017!
