Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

by

A few of you darling readers were excited about the mention of a Pumpkin Protein Smoothie on Monday so I thought I would share my version of the recipe. It’s SO delicious and rid me of any sugary pumpkin pie/latte/cookie cravings. Pro Tip: Make a “smoothie kit” the night before, for a grab and go breakfast.

adapted from a recipe by OhSheGlows.com

Serves 1

Ingredients

1/2 cup coconut water

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I heart Sun Warrior Brand)

1 tbsp chia seeds (these blend better when soaked overnight, see tip below)

1/2 cup pureed pumpkin

1 tbsp blackstrap molasses

1 small banana

1 1/2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice blend

A few cubes of ice

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!

 

Pumpkin Smoothie Kit

Make your smoothie kit the night before like we do for our private chef clients. Measure all the ingredients except the ice and banana into a container and keep covered in the fridge overnight. The chia seeds will soften and all you have to do in the morning is dump the kit into the blender, add a banana and ice and then press the button.

    A&O totally got me hooked on smoothies, I can not WAIT to try this one. I’m definitely over the Pumpkin Spice– tastes too fakey. You two have turned me into an au natural California girl 😉

    My little local market was out of puree, so I got a can of organic pumpkin pie filling – (ingredients were puree, cane juice, nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice), and didn’t use the molasses or the other spices. It was delicious and so filling and not too sweet. I am so excited about this! Oh and I used almond milk instead of coconut, but I want to try it that way tomorrow.
