Nothing screams fall like a little pumpkin. You see it everywhere…in your coffee, yogurt, cream cheese, and now even m&m’s. Why not take this fall fave and add it into your smoothie line up? Adding pumpkin gives you a color and nutrient boost. Go for the bright orange squash and score 5 grams of fiber, an excellent source of fiber in just half of a cup! Your stomach will thank you later.
Recipe type: Smoothie, breakfast, snack
1 cup unsweetened almond milk, or unsweetened “milk” of your choosing
½ cup 100% pure pumpkin, canned or boxed* (We like Farmer’s Market brand)
½ medium frozen banana
1 tablespoon almond butter
⅛ teaspoon vanilla
⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch of nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick, optional
Place all ingredients in a blender.
Mix on high until smooth and pour out into your glass.
Garnish with a cinnamon stick and enjoy!
*Make sure you are buying 100% pure pumpkin. If you buy the pumpkin pie mix you will be getting an additional 12 grams of sugar in your smoothie. That is 3 extra teaspoons! If you want to add a touch of sweetness try 1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup but we don’t think this delicious recipe needs it.
Our favorite, reliable brand that we like to use is Farmer’s Market. It’s organic, non GMO, and has a BPA-FREE liner! Huge points!
