INGREDIENTS:

•¾ cup baked squash or pumpkin

•1 cup packed spinach

•1 T almond butter

•1 T shredded coconut (plus more on top if desired)

•1 serving clean vanilla protein powder

•1 T flax seed

•1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk

•1 tsp pumpkin spice or cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS:

•Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

•Cut squash in half and bake in oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the squash is soft and can easily be scooped out.

•Combine all ingredients into blender.  Add more milk or water to obtained desired consistency.

•Pour into a bowl, top with shredded coconut and enjoy!

NOTES:

I recommend baking the squash in advance.  Can also use canned pumpkin.  I like Orgain organic or Vega pea protein powder.
