Butternut Squash Chai Smoothie - Gluten-free, Vegan + Sugar-free

For my final recipe as part of my vegetarian Thanksgiving series this month with Free People, it just didn’t seem right to share another side dish for the feast or a sweet dessert, I thought it appropriate to share a recipe that is not only healthy and delicious, but also one that uses up some of the leftovers from the big day.

This smoothie is simple to make, perfectly sweet without any refined sugar and it has the most beautiful autumn-inspired hue. The spices are just perfect and you can feel free to adjust accordingly to your own taste. Plus, this smoothie makes the perfect quick and easy breakfast as you are heading out the door to Christmas shop for the day!

If you don’t have any leftover butternut squash puree, feel free to just sub in some unsweetened pumpkin puree. Canned or fresh will work.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving surrounded by the people they love and delicious foods! My day was absolutely perfect!!

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever comment on your blog before, but I absolutely love it! However, I find it so annoying being on the other side of the world (NZ) as ll your wintery recipes are to hot at the moment, and in the summer they’re not so warming. But don’t worry, I am just being a drama queen. This blog has given me so much inspiration! And I am SO going to make this smoothie when I put my feet up next weekend!

    Have a great day!!
