This Orange Squash Drink tastes similar to an Orange Julius, but is a lot healthier. Great for gardeners who need to use up squash!
When I think of fruit and vegetables to put through my juicer, I don't usually think of squash. In fact it is probably the last thing I think of.
At the moment I have a large box of yellow squash in my kitchen. I made a dent in the amount by making Salt and Vinegar Squash Chips, and I dehydrated some to reconstitute later.
I also added one to my African Peanut Stew. After making those recipes, I still have a huge amount.
One way I love to use up a lot of produce is juicing. I always feel great afterwards from the energy rush.
Figuring that squash is pretty mellow and not too strong of a flavor, I thought I would give it a shot. Boy am I glad I did!
This Orange Squash Drink tastes similar to an Orange Julius, which by the way, I think I replicated even better with my Orange Drink.
I don't garden, but I read that squash overtake your garden once you plant them. So, for those of you who have squash overtaking your garden, or receive the bounty from others, here's a way to make a dent in those large batches.

I currently use a BELLA 13694 High Power Juice Extractor (on the left), but I used to use a Champion juicer (on the right). If you plan on juicing a lot, I would recommend investing in a good quality juicer, like the Champion.
Since I don't juice as often as I used to, I bought the Bella, which costs less. The Bella still does what I need it to do. My Champion bit the dust since I didn't take as good of care of it as I could have.
One thing I really liked about the Champion, is it had a blank, which enabled me to make desserts like Banana “Ice cream” with Peanut Butter Syrup , so it all depends on what you are going to use it for and how often.
