Thank you English Mum for this delicious, perfectly autumnal recipe!
350g pumpkin or butternut squash, cut into small cubes
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
100ml apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or used mixed spice)
Pop the squash, vanilla paste, apple juice, cinnamon stick and honey into a saucepan. Bring to the boil then immediately turn it down, pop on a lid and simmer for around 30 minutes (keep an eye on it – you might need a dash more apple juice) or until the squash is completely soft. Allow to cool a bit, remove the cinnamon stick and then blend really, really well with a stick blender or liquidiser.
Perfect for dolloping on your chia oat porridge or for adding to a pumpkin spiced latte!
