Last Call for Pumpkin Spice + Delicious Protein Smoothie Recipe
Aloha! I am just prepping the last batch of Pumpkin Spice Power for the season ... after this batch is gone I will officially be out 'til next year! You can order here while supplies last!
To wrap up another delicious pumpkin season I'm posting one of my favorite smoothie recipes using my Paleo Pumpkin Spice MeeNut Butter. There is a paleo version as well as a paleo-ish protein version. Whatever you choose, they are both nom. Enjoy!
RECIPE: PUMPKIN SPICE MEENUT BUTTER SMOOTHIE
1/2 frozen organic banana [pre-cut into 1 inch chunks]
*1/4 cup Natural Value organic coconut milk
*1/4 cup water or 1/2 cup ice cubes
1 tbsp Paleo Pumpkin Spice MeeNut Butter [can also use Original Paleo MeeNut Butter]
1 tsp ground cinnamon
**1 scoop Stronger Faster Healthier Pure Whey - Natural flavor [optional]
In a Vitamix blender in this order, add chunks of frozen organic bananas, organic coconut milk, water, Pumpkin Spice MeeNut Butter, cinnamon, and if you want to make a protein shake, also add 1 scoop SFH natural pure whey. Blend on high for about 20 seconds and enjoy!
**As an athlete, I actually do take a whey protein supplement and my protein powder of choice is Stronger Faster Healthier [SFH] because their products are GMO-free, hormone-free, antibiotic-free and sourced from grass-fed, free-range animals. And it tastes delicious! Doesn't get any better than that! The Natural Pure Whey has 22.5g protein per scoop. If you also take pre-workout, in-workout, and recovery supplements, they have something for all of that so check them out.
And a Vitamix is just the blender I have loved and used for over 5 years now.
FYI I am NOT a rep for any of these brands I highlight on my blog nor do I get any kickbacks from them - just a happy customer and happy to pass on knowledge to my friends.
If you've made it this far, I have faith that you won't judge me tooooo harshly on this BUT as someone who is not a big coffee drinker [gasp!] but likes it mostly as a flavor enhancer, i sometimes add a half teaspoon of instant coffee [whatever is cheap and available-gasp!] and it adds a nice rich flavor to my smoothie.
Mahalo and enjoy! :)
