Fall is here, the leaves are changing color, the air is crisp and it’s a great excuse to eat as much pumpkin as you can! Pumpkin is loaded with fiber, iron, beta-carotene and key vitamins and minerals. Here is a quick and easy recipe for a fall smoothie. Enjoy it at breakfast or as an afternoon treat. It tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass, except it’s a much healthier version.
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 frozen banana
1 pinch cinnamon (to taste)
2 scoops vanilla chai protein powder (my favorite is Shaklee 180)
8 ounces almond milk
Blend everything in a blender and enjoy!
