As we all know, it’s November (2.5 weeks until Thanksgiving, whaaaat?!). Time for all things pumpkin to come out of hiding for few months until we get sick of them again. 🙂
Today I couldn’t resist the urge for a pumpkin-based breakfast so I scoured Pinterest for a tasty protein-packed smoothie that would still give me the satisfaction of a pumpkin sweet treat.
There are SOOOOO many recipes on there. It’s a tad ridiculous. But I finally found one that gave me a good starting point. I tweaked it enough to make it my own. So if you’d like to enjoy your own pumpkin deliciousness and have a healthy breakfast/post workout meal at the same time, here ya go!
Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
1 cup milk of choice (I used 2%)
1 frozen medium-size banana
small squeeze of honey (or sweetener of choice)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
1.) Blend all ingredients together, pour, and enjoy. Makes one smoothie. Double or triple up to share with your family!
