Easy Healthy Recipe Using Acorn Squash Seeds!

I'm always looking for new shake recipes! I love shakes and smoothies as they are a fast an easy way to add more healthy recipes to your day!

The great thing is you don't have to do a lot of prep work and you don't have to use protein powders. I quite often will have a protein shake in the morning as it is a quick way to start my day before heading off to work or a morning work out. 

However there are a lot of ways to create delicious smoothie recipes without protein powders!

This is a delicious post-workout snack or even a great way to start your day!

I made stuffed acorn squash the other night and had some leftover seeds which I like to save to make this tasty treat or try using the seeds to make these cookies.

This delectable and creamy smoothie is packed with protein, fiber, potassium, vitamins and minerals! You can also add greens to this recipe for added nutrition!


Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Vanilla Hemp Seed Milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1/3 Cup Roasted Acorn Squash Seeds
  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 1 TBSP Sun Butter (or PB alternative of your choice)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon
Acorn Squash Seed Shake Recipe with Sun Butter!

Start by roasting the dry acorn squash seeds (I used seeds from my stuffed acorn squash recipe that I enjoyed the other night). Place dry seeds on a baking sheet in a 400 pre-heated oven lightly coated with oil. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden.

Allow seeds to cool then place in a blender with milk, blend for 1-2 minutes until seeds are well dissolved.

Combine remain ingredients into blended seed mixture and blend until smooth. 

Pour into a glass and lightly sprinkle with cinnamon. Enjoy immediately or place a lid on it and save it for a quick snack later!
