Pumpkin and Squash Recipes

Pumpkin

I have to share a couple more recipes I found online that I tried and enjoyed.  It is fall, so I have pumpkins and squash.  I wanted new ways to use them and not only display them around my house.

The first is the Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie.  I found it on The Lemon Bowl.  I love pumpkin pie, just not the crust or all the sugar.  This seemed like a great substitute.  Check it out to see if you want to try it. I really enjoyed the change. I didn’t add any stevia…the apples and protein powder added enough sweetness, so try it before you sweeten.  I will also even lower the clove next time. I am not a huge fan of clove, so a little less might make it perfect.

The other recipe is Butternut Squash Soup.  I found this recipe on Dr. Frank Lipman website.  I was a little worried.  I have never tried a squash soup before, but it was delicious fresh as well as left over and reheated.  I could taste the onions which made it extra delicious, yet my son said all he could taste was the squash.

If you are looking for some new fall recipes I encourage you to try these recipes and see what you think.  Then tell me, did you like them?
