Apple Pie Surprise Smoothie

What if I told you that you could have apple pie for breakfast?  And not feel guilty about it?  Or for lunch or a midafternoon snack?  

Well, you can, sort of.  See, this smoothie tastes like apple pie.  But it is simply fruit and surprisingly….a vegetable.  No added sugar, no dairy products.  No guilt smoothie.  At least for me.

If you read my Savory Butternut Squash Soup post, you will remember I promised a delicious way to use any leftover squash you may have.  Well, now I deliver.  Yes, the surprising vegetable of choice in this smoothie is squash!  No one will know any different.

    Would this work using yams instead of butternut?
