Butter Pecan smoothie recipe

Butter Pecan

Ingredients

  • 5 oz butternut squash
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp pecans
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lucuma powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup ice

With a soft taste that resembles caramel, lucuma powder comes from a fruit native to Peru. It’s been shown to help balance blood sugar as well as digestion, and has even been used topically to heal blemishes and wounds. Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins, including vitamin A, E, calcium, magnesium, folic acid and zinc. They’re also full of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, which helps combat high cholesterol. With a lush base of almond milk (iron and calcium), banana (potassium), and butternut squash (vitamin C, magnesium and fiber), you’ll hardly be able to believe this snack is good for you — but it sure is!
