This Creamy Butternut Squash Recipe is gonna be your new favorite!
Indeed, everybody loves Mac and Cheese. However, most of the time we think twice before we decide to eat it because of its many unhealthy factors. A traditional mac and cheese contains between 300 and 500 calories per serving; And, most of the time, we eat two servings because one really isn’t enough to satisfy our hunger. On top of that, it’s also high in sodium with more or less 1,000 mg per serving – talk about processed cheeses and commercial-made pasta! Oh, and don’t forget the sugar. Urghh!
Fortunately, this Creamy Butternut Squash Mac Recipe solves this problem. It’s as creamy as the traditional ones but it’s totally healthy – way more healthy!
For only 250 calories per serving, you’ll only get 42 mg of sodium and 3 grams of sugar. As a bonus, this version also provides 7 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of healthy fats, along with excellent amounts of vitamin A, potassium, and calcium. How in the world did that happen?
Well, thanks to butternut squash, gluten-free macaroni, herbs, and cashew butter. Cashew butter is a vegan and dairy-free alternative that imitates the taste and creamy texture of cheese. And, another good thing about this recipe is that it’s easy to make at home and it’s versatile too! Kids not only crave it but adults also love it! Enjoy!
