What kid, (or adult for that matter), wouldn’t want to wake up to this? If you love pumpkin pie, you’re gonna love this pumpkin pie smoothie. My family gets pretty excited when I hand them one of these for breakfast. And what makes me happy, is the fact it’s packed full of antioxidants, nutrients, fiber and protein...not to mention so easy to make. Pumpkin is highly nutritious and rich in Vitamin A, Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which helps in protecting eyesight. Smoothies are a great way to start the day by getting lots of good nutrition in your system.
The most important thing to remember, no matter what smoothie you are making, always keep the sugar content low, (or you are defeating the purpose). I always choose to use Stevia in my smoothies. I must mention here though, not all Stevia is created equal. Most on the market are made from GMO corn, which can cause a whole list of health concerns. SweetLeaf Stevia is the only Stevia sweetener that I use and trust.
Also, for extra health benefits, I always add in Vital Proteins Protein Powder. Including this protein can improve digestion, gut health, prevent weight gain, ease joint pain and give you healthy skin, hair and nails, (just to name a few). Why would you not want to add this to your smoothie, right? 😊 So, getting back to the fun part of this process...I throw all the ingredients into the blender, and just like that, you have the creamiest, most delicious tasting breakfast in seconds. I love to top it off with a little coconut cream and cinnamon.
Have I convinced you to make my pumpkin pie smoothie yet? I promise, you won’t regret it!
