Protein Packed Pumpkin Smoothie
Updated: Oct 27
I am all about all things fall; pumpkin spice and everything nice. Sunday we made pumpkin cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and today I made myself and my toddler a pumpkin smoothie.
The essential ingredients are pictured below. Feel free to swap peanut butter for almond butter if you have it. Or you can omit it altogether if there are nut allergies in your family.
You can also add protein powder if you really want an extra protein boost.
Add whatever spices you like. I just used cinnamon, but pumpkin pie spice or a combination of cinnamon and nutmeg would be extra delicious.

1 frozen banana (I cut before freezing.)
1/2 cup plus one spoonful of pumpkin
1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt
1-2 tablespoons of nutbutter
2 splashes of almond milk (Or, any milk of your choice.)
A drizzle of honey
A few shakes of any spices you like
Blend. That's it. I used my magic bullet which I LOVE and use daily.
I hope you enjoy this healthy recipe that is so simple to assemble you can even make it on Mondays mornings like I did!
If you want to add a little fun crunch for the kids you can top with crumbled graham crackers or shelled pumpkin seeds.
