Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

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.

1 cup  Milk alternative (unsweetened)

1 Frozen banana, chopped

1/2 tsp. Unsulphured blackstrap molasses
