How to Prepare the Squash

Some people like to slice their squash and add it to a smoothie raw. Personally, I like to slice my squash, gently steam it, and freeze it before adding it to my smoothies. I find that it’s easier for me to digest the squash this way, meaning that I don’t get bloated or have any tummy upset after having the smoothie.

To freeze the steamed squash slices, just lay them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze the squash for at least 6 hours before using it in your smoothie or transferring it to a zip-top bag for long-term freezing.
