    mliss29's Note:

    The "Acorn" is acorn squash, of course! ;) Further adventures in trying to feed my liquid-tarian 13-month-old son. When I was making it, I had some fresh grated ginger lying around from another recipe and the smell seemed to be calling me to put it into the smoothie. Turned out to be a great combination. I didn't include cooling time for the squash. If you don't want to cool it, you could probably just add some crushed ice and blend.

      This was excellent! I'm always on the look out for new smoothie recipes, and this one is definitely a keeper. However, I'm not sure I ended up making the same recipe at all. :) I did use an apple and an acorn squash to make a smoothie, but the rest was completely different. First, I didn't have any apple juice so I used 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce instead 1/4 cup of water to thin it out a little. Second, I didn't have fresh ginger on hand, but I do love all of the "fall" spices and I typically use all of them when I use any of them so I used approximately 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp clove, and a dash of nutmeg.

      This was delicious! What a cool way to get squash into a picky person! I used apple cider rather than juice and added a handful of ice cubes. The ice made it a little thinner and reduced the calories even more. This is a great treat while on a diet! Almost like dessert in a glass. The ginger makes this very refreshing! Made this up and kept half in the refrigerator for the next day. Kept fine but I did need to shake it really well. Thanks for a delicious and easy healthy recipe!
