Man, I love me some pumpkin. Except for pie, shockingly…but give it to me in anything else and I am a happy, happy chica.
I know smoothies are now a no-no on Engine 2, but I am follow-the-spirit-of-the-law kinda’ gal…actually, f&ck laws. I like smoothies, I am still losing weight while indulging in them occasionally at home and if I want to have one with breakfast, I will. Dammit. I try to avoid the sugary fruit bomb kind of smoothies because they are too sweet for my sweet Kapha self. In the spirit of everything Fall and Pumpkin-y, here’s my current fave—look Ma, no fruit or added sugars!
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
1 scoop Sun Warrior Warrior Blend protein powder (or any vegan, vanilla flavored protein)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
alternative sweetner to taste
crushed ice to your desired thickness
5 shakes pumpkin pie spice (I like Frontier)
1 tsp. vanilla
Blend and suck it down!
