I LOVE pumpkin and especially this time of year! I'm always trying to find unique, clean-version recipes to utilize pumpkin at any time. Lately I've been on a smoothie fix and I had to share this recipe as it's been a staple in my house the last few weeks. Great for post recovery after that fierce workout, or perfect for the later evening snack. I hope you love it as much as I do! As always, modify for your tastes as I'm always tweaking things here and there.
1/2 cup pumpkin (canned or freshly cooked)
4-6 oz soy or almond milk (can substitute greek yogurt for a thicker consistency & more protein)
1 serving vanilla protein powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
pinch of ground ginger
handful of ice
- Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
