Talk about a winner in this breakfast item which includes many of my favourite ingredients – squash, coconut milk and warming chai spices!

Butternut squash is a nutritional powerhouse – low in fat, high in fibre, vitamins B6 and A and potassium.

Eat this warm, cold or room temperature and top with warmed or raw apples. It also tastes better the next day!

Ingredients:

1 medium sized roasted squash (I love buttermilk but you can use acorn or kombucha as well)
1 can of coconut milk
2-3 T of maple syrup or to taste
1 pinch of salt
1/3 t of cardamon, clove and cinnamon (or more!) OR spices to your preference
1/3 cup of ground flax or my preference, North Coast Naturals Daily Cleanse
1/2 cup of nut butter (I used my fresh sunflower seed butter)

 

Directions:

1) It’s easy, put all items in the food processor and blend!
