Cinnamon Spiced Apple Squash Juice

By:  Tara Fuller

Don't drink this because it's good for you, drink it because it's DELICIOUS and perfect for tending a sweet tooth. This juicing recipe posted as "Recipe of the Week" on RebootYourLife is full of all the flavors of autumn while doing the body good.
 
Its rich orange hue is reflective of a high concentration of  beta-carotene, an antioxidant protecting the body from damaging molecules called free radicals, and Vitamin C. Plus just one 8oz serving provides 50 percent RDA of Vitamin E; and cinnamon is shown to help keep blood sugar in check. 

Adapted recipe makes 2 servings

4 cups butternut squash (peeled and cubed)
1-2 large organic Apple  (washed; I like granny)
  dash of cinnamon

Place ingredients in the order listed above into chute of juicer except for cinnamon. When juice is complete, sprinkle with cinnamon and poor over ice. 

Enjoy!
