Pumpkin Pie in a Glass

Hello friends!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, what better than a delicious pumpkin-pie inspired smoothie? A couple of weekends ago, I was making a banana recovery shake upon returning home from a workout at the gym. 

When I opened our fridge to grab the milk, I noticed my leftover pumpkin sitting on the top shelf. After grabbing it on a whim, adding a heaping two spoonfuls to the blender, along with a little cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, it was complete! It was definitely a nice, festive change from my other smoothie flavor rotations.

To make one pumpkin pie smoothie, you'll need:
  • 1 banana (frozen works best for extra creaminess)
  • 2 heaping spoonfuls of canned pumpkin
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • cinnamon
  • enough milk to get things moving around
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • handful of ice cubes
  • whipped cream is optional but definitely recommended
Whip everything up in the blender--adding the ice last. Pour into your favorite glass before topping with a squirt of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon to finish things off!
