Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

A protein packed creamy smoothie that tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass. You’ll FALL in love this easy recipe!

Pumpkin spice anything makes me a happy person and come early September I go pumpkin crazy! Naturally I had to find a way to fit pumpkin into my protein smoothies.

After experimenting with a few recipes using Greek yogurt as a base, my children and I quickly came to the conclusion that the yogurt made it too tart. We added a Stevia packet just to add a little sweetness and it worked well. If you do not have a frozen banana, no worries as you can simply increase the ice cubes. The banana works though and helps to yield a creamier texture.

Why Healthy

  • Pumpkins are low in calories, but are a great source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Pumpkin is a rich source of the all-important antioxidant beta-carotene.
