This Pumpkin Smoothie tastes just like pumpkin pie. A healthy blend of almond milk, almond butter, pumpkin & bananas make up this delicious smoothie. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this in the morning?
Have you looked at the calorie stats on Starbucks’ Pumpkin Latte? A grande has 380 calories. I tried to make myself feel better by ordering a tall, with skim milk, and no whipped cream. It still comes in at 200 calories, and really, it was nothing to write home about.
This Pumpkin Smoothie is.
This pumpkin smoothie is the way to go folks. It’s like a good for you pumpkin pie ice cream that you can have for breakfast! And, unlike a Pumpkin Spice Latte, this actually fills you up and gives you lasting energy to tackle the morning. It’s the best way to start the day!
Plus, it’s super simple to make. Just pop all the ingredients into a high-powered blender, such as the Vitamix, and give everything a whirl. It comes out super frothy and perfectly delicious.
There are tons of nutrients in this smoothie too. Almond butter provides protein. Pumpkin is rich in Vitamin A and antioxidants. And, the flax adds fiber and essential Omega-3 fats. Also, it’s dairy-free and vegan.
Pumpkin Smoothie Ingredients
- Almond Milk
- Pumpkin Puree
- Almond Butter
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
This pumpkin smoothie is definitely thick. So, if your blender is having problems processing it, just add a splash more of almond milk to thin it out a bit.
I’m loving indulging in one of these every morning. Quick and easy, it’s such a delicious morning treat for the fall season. And I’m all for saving up those calories so that I can have an extra large bowl of pasta for dinner. It’s all about priorities, right?
