RECIPE: Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

oh. my. goodness. I'm obsessed with this protein smoothie recipe. it's becoming a daily post-workout staple.

Pumpkin Protein Smoothie Recipe:

- 10-15 ice cubes

- 1 scoop protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)

** I use Jay Robb's egg white protein powder - no wheat, no dairy!!

- 3/4 c. soy milk (can be substituted for whole, skim or almond)

- 3/4 c. 100% pumpkin puree

- 1/2 banana (can be frozen or fresh)

- 1 TBSP. flaxseed, milled

- 1 tsp. vanilla extract

- a heavy dash of pumpkin pie spice OR individual dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger

 

Blend it all together. Add water for a thinner consistency. Pour and enjoy!! It makes a hefty serving so share with a friend or save some for later!! De-lic-ious. I've even prepared this the night before, popped it in the fridge, and made it an on-the-go breakfast!

 

Try it. Dare you. If you're one of those seasonal junkies, you'll love it. You know what...even if you're the grinch you'll love it.

Eat well. Live well. Be well.
