This was excellent! I'm always on the look out for new smoothie recipes, and this one is definitely a keeper. However, I'm not sure I ended up making the same recipe at all. :) I did use an apple and an acorn squash to make a smoothie, but the rest was completely different. First, I didn't have any apple juice so I used 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce instead 1/4 cup of water to thin it out a little. Second, I didn't have fresh ginger on hand, but I do love all of the "fall" spices and I typically use all of them when I use any of them so I used approximately 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp clove, and a dash of nutmeg.
This was delicious! What a cool way to get squash into a picky person! I used apple cider rather than juice and added a handful of ice cubes. The ice made it a little thinner and reduced the calories even more. This is a great treat while on a diet! Almost like dessert in a glass. The ginger makes this very refreshing! Made this up and kept half in the refrigerator for the next day. Kept fine but I did need to shake it really well. Thanks for a delicious and easy healthy recipe!
