Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Zola on

Enjoy this previously published Zola classic!

Gone are the days when I would regularly pull out my big food processor, or my massive mixer, or my mondo blender that could mix up 12 cups of liquid in an instant. Even my bread maker is gone. I’ve kept my food processor and massive mixer but I hardly ever use them anymore. I use a small, powerful hand mixer and my true favorite; my Bullet Blender.   Now, this is not meant to be a commercial for the Bullet Blender. There are other brands available. I just happen to love my Bullet. It’s the whole concept of a small, portable, easy-to-use, dependable blender that excites me.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

There is a healthy substitute for just about everything offered by any food outlet. Kudos to Cindy for coming up with this option for pumpkin on the run. I had one of these. Tasted just like pumpkin pie in a glass. For me, even just the yogurt kept me full til lunch but I can see adding the whey protein too. Be sure to use WHEY protein and not soy protein. We do not recommend the consumption of soy.

Servings: Serves 1

Ingredients:

 

1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 cup coconut milk (experiment with this amount to your desired thickness)
1-2 tsp Truvia
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp vanilla

Instructions:

If I make this in the morning I add a scoop of protein powder (this will add 116 calories, but 26 grams of protein!) If I use the protein powder though I only use 1 tsp Truvia because there is stevia in the protein powder.

Put all of your ingredients in the blender. Blend on high until smooth, transfer to a glass and drink up!

I also sometimes add ice cubes in the blender to make it more like a shake, or even put in the freezer for a bit to freeze it up. Enjoy!!!

Enjoy!
Cheers,
Zola
