Makes two servings.
Start your morning with this superfood smoothie.
1 cup organic butternut squash or pumpkin puree*
½ cup almond or hemp milk
¼ cup canna-coco milk
¼ cup coconut cream (pictured)**
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated if possible
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 cups ice
*If roasting your own squash or pumpkins, slice in half, scoop out seeds and roast on a lightly oiled baking sheet for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees. The flesh should pierce easily with a sharp knife. Allow to cool, then scoop out flesh. Refrigerate before using in smoothie.
**Trader Joe’s sells a great organic coconut cream. Otherwise, check the liquor aisle where mixers are stocked. Third option: refrigerate a full-fat can of coconut milk for at least an hour. Open and scrape off the solids that have risen to the top – voila, coconut cream!
Combine all ingredients in a Vita-Mix. Process on high for one-to-two minutes.
This smoothie is quite luscious. If nighttime is your preferred hour to consume cannabis, remove half the ice from smoothie recipe and eat with a spoon for dessert!
