Butternut Bliss

Ingredients

  • 4 oz butternut squash
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp hemp protein
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Because it includes 20 amino acids (including nine essential amino acids our bodies don’t produce on their own), protein, healthy fat, fiber and magnesium, hemp protein is often considered a “perfect” food. Pear and squash amp up the fiber (which helps convert the natural sugar to energy), coconut cream amps up the healthy fat, and cinnamon adds a burst of anti-inflammatory power. With its low sugar / high fiber / and healthy carb count per serving, this nutritionally-balanced smoothie is perfect for a meal replacement any time of day.
