Since it's finally Fall now I have been celebrating the season in full force. Pumpkin spice almond milk lattes, pumpkin spice rubios tea, gluten free pumpkin spice muffins, and today I made a pumpkin spice smoothie.... What?
As you can see I take the whole pumpkin thing wayy too far until I get so sick of it that I don't even want to see or hear about pumpkin anything-- ever again. Until... next fall. Then I'm ready for it all over again haha!
This morning I whipped up a delicious Pumpkin Spice Superfood Smoothie in my Nutri Bullet . Right now Jamba Juice has something similar and it's really yummy too. But Jamba Juice uses sorbet in their smoothies so there is always that added sugar. If you're like me, then added sugar is something you try to stay away from. Instead if I need to add sugar I will use a little bit of organic raw honey so that you get all the benefits from this superfood and not just empty calories.
Here's how I made it:
(I used the small Nurtibullet Cup)
1/2 ripe organic banana
1-2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree (to taste)
1/2 to 1 tablespoons of raw organic honey (to taste)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon chi seeds
a splash of pure vanilla extract
a dash of pumpkin pie spice
Fill the rest of the cup up almost to the "max fill" line with almond milk & toss in 5 ice cubes. Give it a blast and devour.
You're welcome ;-)
I hope you are enjoying Fall as much as I am! XO- Shannon
