Pumpkin pie smoothies have been done, but that doesn’t make them any less amazing. This is one of my favorite post-run meals, because it tastes like dessert (without being too sweet) and contains a nice balance of carbohydrate and protein.
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use whey)
1 small banana
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup ice cubes (you can use less, but I like really thick smoothies)
Put everything into a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy.
Makes 1 generous serving.
