Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin pie smoothieAhhhh pumpkin pie.  My personal favorite kind of pie.  In general, I am a bit of a pumpkin addict.  I prefer to put pumpkin in just about anything; protein bars, breads, squares, soups, ice cream and the list goes on…  Smoothies are not safe either!  I was going to call this recipe “drinkable pumpkin pie” but I thought,  “wait; that sounds a bit disgusting; like soggy pumpkin pie”… Hmmm. Pumpkin pie smoothie it is.  Plus, I can never resist adding protein powder to my smoothies to keep me full longer!

Pumpkin Pie Protein smoothie

1/2 cup pumpkin

1 small frozen banana, pre sliced (or fresh ripe banana and 4-5 ice cubes)

1 Tbsp flax

1 cup almond milk

1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 – 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

4 drops stevia or sweetener of choice to taste

Blend, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve immediately.  Serves one.

The Mad Radish says:  You can omit the flax if you like but I prefer it because it reminds me of the crust of the pie!

The Snobby Wasabi says:  I find that this is best enjoyed on the veranda while listening to classical music.
