Pumpkin Pie Power-Up-Your-Day Smoothie Recipe
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Is A Family Favorite
We have made it to October already… Many of us are already preparing for the festivities of Halloween. Pumpkin is generally quite seasonal but I think its a delicious and nutritious vegetable that should be used a lot more. You can purchase it year-round either whole or in can form.
Pumpkin is really versatile and can be whipped up into a morning breakfast in no time at all.
Not only do I love this smoothie for its texture and taste. But, I am thankful for its health benefits. This pumpkin smoothie recipe contains all natural ingredients. These ingredients consist of pumpkin puree (canned or homemade), bananas, yogurt, milk, spices and a touch of maple syrup.
When mixed together, one cup of Pumpkin Pie Smoothie gives you 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. In addition you will also get a kick of potassium, calcium, vitamin A and iron.
Lastly, this smoothie is also baby-friendly.
Pumpkin and bananas are both naturally sweet. Therefore, this smoothie is already mildly sweet without any additional sweeteners. I think this is probably one of the tastiest ways to pack in all your nutrients and fiber for the day. It’s basically the same as indulging in a decadent soft serve that you can drink.
