Pumpkin Spice Smoothie


Healthy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

This smoothie started out a beautiful orange color. But given the chance, I could not miss the opportunity to add some leafy greens to it, which turned it green. While the color may have changed, the flavor remained absolutely delicious. I figured since it now looked more like a zombie, it would be named the Halloween Pumpkin Spice Smoothie.



Pumpkins are incredibly nutritious. They have fiber and pectins which aid with digestion, beta-beta-carotene vitamin A to help for eye sight, potassium to regulate blood pressure and tons of immune supporting vitamins and minerals. If those are not reasons enough to throw some in your smoothie, then I do not what is.


While I absolutely love the taste of pumpkin spice lattes, I do not like all of the sugar and junky ingredients they put into the. Here is a smoothie version of a pumpkin spice latte, loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein and so much goodness.


Ingredients

1/2 c almond milk

1/2 c water

1 frozen banana

1 tbs ground flax

1 tbs chia seeds

1 scoop protein powder

1/2 c pumpkin puree

1/2 tsp pumpkin spice

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 kale stalks

1/2 cup ice


Directions

Place all of the ingredients into a high speed blender. Start blending on low and gradually increase to high. Blend for about 20 minutes. Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy.
