Healthy Eats // Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
|| PUMPKIN ||
Pumpkin pie for breakfast?! Yes!!! With Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, Fall is pumpkin season! Though a traditional pumpkin pie is high in calories and sugar, I made a healthier low calorie version of pumpkin pie as a smoothie. Pumpkin is rich in nutrients and vitamins such as vitamin A which promotes eye health, and fiber which contributes to weightloss. The Greek yogurt in this recipe also adds calcium, potassium, protein, and a creamy texture which makes this smoothie taste like you are having desert for breakfast!
– 1/2 cup organic pumpkin
– 1 frozen banana
– 1 cup vanilla almond milk
– 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
– 2 cubes of ice
1 — Blend all ingredients together in a blender and enjoy! (I use my Nutribullet)
Note: For a sweeter flavor, feel free to add a touch of honey or maple syrup. For more protein, add 1-2 scoops of your favorite protein powder. For more spice, you can increase the amount of pumpkin spice and cinnamon, and you can also add nutmeg.
