Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie!

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!

Enjoy!
