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.
Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
adapted from a recipe by OhSheGlows.com
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
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!
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.
