  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • ½ - ¾ cup of frozen butternut squash (you can also use canned pumpkin, cooked squash or sweet potato)
  • 1-2 heaping scoops vanilla protein (two scoops for two servings)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (or other fiber powder)
  • 1-2 tablespoons liquid MCT oil (coconut oil, coconut butter, or other fat)
  • 1 cup frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1-2 teaspoons ground turmeric or boosted turmeric blend *
  • 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin pie spice blend*
  • sprinkle shredded coconut on top
  1. starting with the liquid first, add all of the ingredients to your high speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Serve topped with your grain-free granola, coconut flakes or other crunchies on top!
Add black pepper, if you aren't using an already boosted turmeric powder, this makes it so the curcumin the active ingredients in the turmeric is most bioavailable to our body. You can also use fresh turmeric, if you'd like, again being sure to include some black pepper to your smoothie.

If you aren't using a pumpkin pie spice blend, add approx ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ½ teaspoon ground ginger and a pinch of cloves. If you have it, grated fresh ginger right in there is also really really nice!
