Glowed-Up Spiced Butternut Squash Smoothie

The air is getting far too chilly, yet my smoothie cravings are real, so making a seasonal smoothie is the only solution. My new obsession is this plant-based, gluten-free, and paleo super anti-inflammatory spiced butternut squash smoothie for those days when you’re all about glowing up your morning. I’ve had this probably 3 times in the past week alone and am completely hooked. It’s great for giving a boost of vitamins in these winter months, yet tastes exactly like eating a spiced pie for breakfast!

  15. - 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  16. - 2 tablespoons plant-based yogurt
  17. - 1/4 cup almond milk or oat milk
  18. - 1/4 cup your favorite granola
  19. - almond butter

Instructions
  1. To make the smoothie, simply add all ingredients from butternut squash to ground flax seed in a powerful blender and blend until combined.
Smoothie Jar method
  1. Start by adding about 1/4 cup of your favorite granola to the bottom of a glass or jar. Next, add the chia pudding layer. To make this, combine chia seeds, plant-based yogurt, and almond or oat milk in a separate small bowl. Stir to combine and wait a few minutes for the chia to absorb the liquid before adding the chia pudding on top of the granola. Next, add the butternut smoothie to the rim. Top with a bit of extra yogurt, some granola, orange zest, rose petals (because we fun!) and drip almond butter on the sides with a frosting applicator or fork. Oggle, then enjoy!
  2. Smoothie Bowl Method
  3. Load the whole butternut squash smoothie into a bowl, then top with subsequent half moon-shaped layers of toppings. Start with the granola, then add the coconut chips, rose petals, blueberries, and a drizzle of honey and voila!
