Autumn in a Glass: A Delicious Smoothie

Autumn Smoothie
By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

Nothing says fall like pumpkin and squash. Although we often think of using squash on salads,  as sides and other similar dishes, roasted squash in a smoothie is surprisingly absolutely delicious. Squash is loaded with cancer-preventive beta-carotene and it’s also a source of immune-boosting vitamins A and C that can help to ward off the winter cold. Try this smoothie, it’s absolutely delicious!

If you didn’t have butternut squash on hand, you could use pumpkin or another type of squash instead.
