I love pumpkin at this time of the year and like to stock up my cupboards with handy cans of (organic) pureed pumpkin to pop into soups and smoothies. This is a really simple smoothie to make and is sweetened by adding half a banana. I added some sweet potato too since that’s what we had for dinner last night and it was already roasted and sitting in my fridge. You can play around with the ingredients to make it have more of a pumpkin or sweet potato flavor. This would make a delicious breakfast or lunch.
2 heaped tablespoons organic pumpkin puree (from a can)
2 heaped tablespoons or 1/2 roasted sweet potato
1/2 banana (I like mine frozen)
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
1 large cup of unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon or a good pinch of cinnamon, to taste
Blend everything well in your blender for about 30 seconds until smooth and drink up!
