Pumpkin Loving Smoothie

I promised another amazing pumpkin recipe and here it is.....
If you are a fan of pumpkin pie, this smoothie is sure to please. It is sweet, fragrant, creamy and delicious all in one cup! Pumpkins are low in calories, high in fiber and beta carotene. This is a great way to enjoy pumpkin without all of the added sugar and calories that is in pumpkin pie, custards and cheesecakes. With this smoothie you are getting all of that pumpkin goodness without affecting your waist line!

½ banana
1 tsp pumpkin spice (or mixture of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg)
¼ cup pumpkin puree
1 cup almond milk
1 serving of vanilla protein powder

Blend all ingredients; expect protein powder until well blended. Add the protein powder, pulse until mixed in. Enjoy!

One more amazing pumpkin recipe to come! Stay tuned!!!!

Share with me in the comments section below! What is your favorite thing to do at this time of year??? It could be about food (like enjoying amazing pumpkin recipes), something you like to do outdoors, halloween related, etc.
Always enjoy hearing your comments and feedback!


  1. going out to buy some pumpkin puree'
    Looks so yummy, my mouth is watering!

  2. Thanks Val! If you like pumpkin pie...it is sure to please :O)

  3. Hi, would that be a 30 g serving of protein?

  4. It really depends on the type of protein powder used. If you are using whey it is usually about 25-30 grams. A nice hemp or rice protein would be about 15-20g.
    Hope that helps
