Hopefully after this post, I will lay off the pumpkin for a little…hopefully. I make no promises though. Pumpkin everything is so darn yummy!
So let’s talk about this pumpkin smoothie. It should be dessert, well it can be dessert. But it can also be breakfast, as in what I had today, or a snack, or a give-me-something-sweet-and-stillSOgood-for me. Yeah, that too. This smoothie has a ton of vitamins (hello pumpkin!), will boost energy (all about the maca), and keep you nice and full for a long time. And did I mention how goooood it is?
So again, if you are looking for a way to use up some extra pumpkin puree, try out this smoothie.
All you need to do is toss the following in a blender:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 large frozen banana
- about 3 heaping tablespoons of pumpkin puree
- 1 large tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 small nub of ginger, skin cut off
- 2 pitted dates
- 1 teaspoon maca powder (optional)
- a few ice cubes
- Blend away!
What are your favorite pumpkin treats?
