BLUEBERRY SQUASH PUDDING- Vegan, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free & Refined Sugar-Free

Long weekends are awesome. Long weekends when I have absolutely no plans are even more awesome. I spent my Saturday morning re-organizing my cupboards and clearing off my limited counter space. I enjoyed every second of it. I love having a clean and organized kitchen. Usually after I clean and organize though I experience an overwhelming sense of creativity. This usually results in me developing multiple recipes and ultimately destroying my earlier accomplishments. Saturday was no exception. Luckily the recipes I created were absolutely delicious and well worth it:

Blueberry Squash Pudding

Blueberry Squash Pudding

Velvety and sweet, this healthy pudding is speckled with juicy blueberries and sprinkled with fragrant cinnamon. Enjoy it for a meal or a dessert!

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup blueberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt
  • dash of cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Cook butternut squash by steaming it until soft. 
  2. Meanwhile, add 1/2 cup blueberries and water to a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer. While it is simmering, mash the blueberries with a potato masher. Remove from heat.
  3. Add cooked butternut squash, ground flax seed, non-dairy yogurt and mashed blueberry mixture to a high-power blender (I used my Vitamix). Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour into two serving dishes, top with remaining blueberries and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Grab a friend, grab a spoon and dig right in!
