If you’re a pumpkin pie fan like myself, having a slice of pumpkin pie for breakfast has probably crossed your mind a dozen times or so 😉 And, there are definitely a few healthy pies out there that could make your dreams come true. But, if your pie is the over processed, refined sugar laden kind, I’d recommend keeping it in the fridge and saving a slice for the end of the day, after you’ve loaded up on nutrient dense foods.
Let’s turn this deliciousness into a healthy smoothie, shall we 🙂
Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie
1 cup Milk alternative (unsweetened)
1 Frozen banana, chopped
1/2 tsp. Unsulphured blackstrap molasses
3 Tbsp. Pumpkin puree ( not canned pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 scoop Vanilla protein powder of choice ( I like to use Genuine health’s fermented vegan protein powder or Orgain’s Organic plant based protein powder)
2 Tbsp Raw pumpkin seeds ( you can add two more Tbsp if you don’t want to use protein powder)
1 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice mix
Place all your ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth or for 1-2 minutes.
The ingredients in this smoothie are loaded with nutrients, even the sweetener has minerals.
Pumpkins and their seeds pack……
