I never know what to do with the squashes that we get during the Fall from my CSA. This year I have finally found a use for them, though slightly by accident.
Last week I roasted my squashes and then pureed them when they cooled. I poured the puree into an ice cube tray and frozes them like popcicles. I wasn't sure what to do with them, put some in mac and cheese, what else? I was at a loss.
But then I got an idea. I took some of the frozen squash-cubes, some plain yogurt, a banana (or a half of one, whatever is around), a splash of vanilla, one squirt of honey (about a teaspoon) and a shake of cinnamon. Blend it all up and what do you have? A Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.
Thing One asked for a smoothie today. And then he paused, and specified...."The one with the ice. The one with the orange ice cubes!"
More veggies in the Things' tummies. Another point for Mommy.
