Butternut Squash Mash

Though I love sweet potatoes. Sadly, these are not a HCG friendly food.  Butternut squash is a low glycemic food approved for the modified OWL diet. 
I have been playing around with the texture of this food and found it to be a good substitute for a potato.
Our local Walmart Neighborhood store carries fresh, steam in a bag, cubed butternut squash.  Otherwise, have fun chopping and peeling and cubing it yourself :)

1 bag of the cubed steam in bag butternut squash
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon splenda
4-8 sprays of non-calorie spray butter (I Cannot Believe It's Not Butter or equivalent)
Microwave the squash for 3 to 4 minutes.  Add squash to skillet and mix in cinnamon, splenda, and spray butter.  Cook with 1/4 cup water to further soften.  Mash with a potato masher or add directly to food processor and blend until smooth.  Soooo good!
