It finally feels like fall here in Arizona! I’m loving all of the pumpkin recipes and just made Happy Herbivore’s Pumpkin Bars this week which are very tasty. I think I like them even better after they’ve spent some time in the freezer – so good!
But, one of my biggest pet peeves is wasting food. So, when a recipe calls for a cup of pumpkin (vs. using the entire can), I’ve got to find a way to use that extra pumpkin before it goes bad. So, after a little experimenting, here is my yummy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie recipe. Let me know what you think!
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
1 cup almond milk (or your favorite non-dairy milk)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t. cocoa powder (or cacao)
1 scoop of your favorite (subtle or no flavor) protein powder
1 t. chia seeds (or other hidden gem like ground flax seeds)
1 cup of ice
