Mashed Cinnamon Squash

Mashed Cinnamon Squash
I have been trying to eat as seasonally as possible, so lately that means a lot of root vegetables. Trying to make root vegetables taste good to kids can be a little challenging though.

I like squash in Chili, or Stew, and I also like it in place of mashed potatoes with cinnamon and some type of sweetener.

Squash is full of Vitamins A and C. It’s anti-inflammatory which means it’s a great anti-aging food. The antioxidants will also help everyone from getting sick.

Squash also does a good job at regulating blood sugar, especially when combined with cinnamon.


Preheat oven to 400.

Scoop out the seeds (rinse them, add coconut oil and sea salt, then bake like pumpkin seeds for a snack if you like).

You can cut the squash in half (like I do), or you can puncture a few holes and bake it whole for 45-60 minutes.

Scoop out the inside, and place in high speed blender.

Add 1 tablespoon raw honey (maple syrup or agave will work as well).

Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Puree until well-mixed and serve.

If there’s a baby in the house, just skip the sweetener, and this makes a great babhy food.
