  • 2 tablespoons dried shredded coconut (unsweetened)

Notes

* You can use yellow squash or zucchini squash. To freeze the squash, cut it into 1-inch chunks. Lay the chunks on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in the freezer and freeze for at least 6 hours or until frozen through. Place the frozen squash chunks in a zip-top bag and store in the freezer until you’re ready to make this recipe.

**To serve the smoothie as a smoothie bowl, pour the blended smoothie into a bowl. Top with granola and fresh raspberries, if desired.
