Making some pies for Thanksgiving? Have some pumpkin left over? Here’s a delicious smoothie that you can make using left over pumpkin!
1/2 cup of pumpkin
1 cup of vanilla almond milk (you could also use regular milk, and add a teaspoon of vanilla)
1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice OR 1/4 tsp of each ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice
I also added 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
Blend and drink immediately. Yum, yum!
Why do I love pumpkin so much? Well, it’s so good for you! Pumpkin is full of vitamins A and C, potassium, manganese, copper, and riboflavin (a B vitamin). There is also a considerable amount of magnesium, phosphorus, iron, folate, vitamins E and B6, niacin, thiamin and pantothetic acid! So feel free to indulge in that piece of pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving weekend!
