Ok so some of you may think that putting squash, sweet potato or pumpkin into your smoothies might be a bit strange but I promise it is seriously delicious. Being naturally sweet, root vegetables can add a fantastic natural sweetness and also deliver a really high dosage of antioxidants and beta-carotene at the same time.
I love to prepare a big batch of roast squash/sweet potato/pumpkin on a Sunday night and store it in the fridge – I can then use some in salads and have some straight to hand to whack in my smoothies. It’s all about preparing ahead.
