Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
By Sarah Axtell, ND • June 4, 2014
This recipe was inspired by one of my patients. I always love learning healthy recipes and tips from my patients!
This smoothie recipe makes an ideal breakfast- packed full of blood sugar stabilizing protein, antioxidant rich pumpkin, seeds for essential micronutrients and fiber, anti-inflammatory spices.
Thanksgiving is in a few days, and this might be a good breakfast to start the day off right.
- 1/2 can organic pumpkin
- 1 banana
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I like hemp, rice or pea protein powders)
- 3-4 tbsp ground pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for 1 minute. Enjoy!
