Pumpkin smoothie recipe: Musketeer

Unlike Hokkaido or butternut, Muscat squash doesn't taste like starchy mush when pureed raw, but resembles its relatives - melons. This pairs perfectly with pear and apple, as well as the sweeteners banana and Medjool date.
We also combine the subtle nutmeg pumpkin flavor with warming pumpkin pie spices: a little nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, cinnamon and vanilla. In our opinion, the smoothie tasts best with a mild green base - e.g spinach or the winter salad Indian lettuce.

Spice tip: In general, spices can add variety to green smoothies - just try your favorite flavors. It's best to start with small amounts because a high-speed blender extracts all the aroma.

Green smoothies have been my replacement for morning cerals since 2009. They are inspiring, delicious and speak for themselves. They fit into our lives with five kids and lots of joy in creative healthy cooking. I really love to prepare or create new smoothies. Inspired by the Green Smoothie, I combine two of my passions with my job: taking pictures and working with food.
