Fall Harvest Smoothie

Fall Harvest Smoothie created by Lizzymommy

This recipe tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass! You will never know it is packed with veggies and fruits and "good for you stuff". Top with a little fat free whip cream for an extra-special desert. My teen-age daughter begs for this and sometimes we even heat it up for a thick soup. The key to this recipe is to make sure you use a blender/smoothie maker that has enough power to completely puree alll the ingredients; otherwise the squash will stay stringy.

    Delicious AND Nutritious! We loved this! Served it for my daughter's Halloween-themed Sleepover Bday Party. I wanted to sneak something nutritious into the picky-eater guests, and this absolutely fit the bill. The girls had this alongside their ogre eyeballs for breakfast, and I feel a little better about the incipient trick-or-treating! Thank you!
