Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

Clean Eating Pumpkin Protein Smoothie - Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo-Friendly, No Refined Sugars | The Healthy Family and Home

What do you do when you have just a 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree leftover looking at you sadly?

Why you use it to make a healthy Pumpkin Protein Smoothie!

It’s a great way to get the comforting flavors of fall into a morning smoothie, and it’s also nice change from the green smoothies.

But you don’t have to wait until fall to add pumpkin in your daily smoothies because pumpkin is super high in vitamin A (280% dv).

And to make sure this smoothie as healthy as can be, it has 17 grams of organic plant-based protein (a complete protein with 7 g of sprouted grains, seeds and legumes) and also provides 20% dv of fiber.

Add even more extra nutrition by sprinkling some raw pumpkin seeds and hemp seeds on top.

Where to Buy:  If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this smoothie, you can order from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door, and you’ll be supporting The Healthy Family and Home at the same time!

 

 

Tip #1:  I used “Raw Meal – Vanilla” protein powder in this recipe and the “vanilla” flavor gives it a sweeter flavor than the plain “Raw Meal” so I didn’t have to add any extra sweetener.  If you use the plain flavored “Raw Meal” or a different protein powder, you may want to add a little sweetener to it.
