Recipe: Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
Nothing says fall quite like pumpkin, but from pumpkin pie to pumpkin spiced lattes, a lot of fall’s most popular pumpkin treats are sadly lacking in nutritional value.
Pumpkins provide you with plenty of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C — all of which support heart health. Add in a banana for potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B6. Finished off with cinnamon, nutmeg, and 100% pure maple syrup to give you that classic pumpkin pie taste (without all of the artificial sweeteners). Add one scoop of TB12 Protein, and this smoothie gets you your pumpkin fix with a healthy, protein-packed spin on a seasonal favorite.
- 1 large banana
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup Greek-style almond milk yogurt
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 teaspoon 100% pure maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup crushed ice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 scoop TB12 Protein
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve right away. Enjoy!
