Vegan MoFo: Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

13 Oct

 

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!

    This just made my weekend. I’m always looking for new smoothie recipes and I’m a pumpkin fanatic. It sounds awesome. Plus I love that you said, “f&#k laws.” That’s my mantra.
