Megan’s Comments:

What started out to be butternut squash mash ‘potatoes’ quickly turned into a delicious sauce as I kept adding more coconut milk and realized it started looking like a creamy dressing. I was making zucchini noodles with broccoli and ground turkey that night and had the idea or pouring this creation all over. Verdict: We loved it! It looks like a cheese sauce and brings beautiful color and sweet taste and texture to our ‘pasta’ dish!

If you have any kind of squash around (acorn, butternut, pumpkin) add some coconut milk and make yourself one healthy dip/sauce that you can enjoy with a smile!

You can make the sauce sweet by adding cinnamon, butter, and honey to it OR savory by adding garlic, salt/pepper, and even some curry spice would be fantastic!

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a tasty, nutritious recipe that provides a great cream sauce for veggies, meat and pasta alternatives.  Butternut squash is higher in carbohydrate but this recipe is loaded with good fats in grass-fed butter and coconut milk.  The good fats lower the negative effects of the carbohydrates.  You can also add in a bit of cinnamon to improve blood sugar regulation even more.

This recipe is also loaded with vitamin A in both the squash and the grass-fed butter.  The butter is rich in conjugated linoleic acid which strengthens the bodies immune system and improves fat burning.  Additionally, grass-fed butter is rich in butyric acid which helps to heal leaky gut syndrome by feeding the enterocytes of the intestine and reducing inflammation throughout the body.

Garlic is a potent anti-microbial that has profound anti-inflammatory effects in the body.  Turmeric is perhaps the most powerful anti-inflammatory herb on the planet.  This recipe is great for the heart, liver, gut and brain.

Enjoy!
