Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Recipe

Pumpkin Smoothie
By Be Well Health Coach Kerry Bajaj

Happy Halloween! Instead of filling up on leftover Halloween candy, here is a nourishing and naturally sweet breakfast smoothie to start your day and keep sugar cravings at bay. Who needs a Snickers bar when you can have pumpkin pie in a mug for breakfast?

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • ½ frozen banana (or 1/4 avocado for a lower-sugar option)
  • 1 packet of Sustain protein powder
  • 1 tsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 6-8 oz of water
  • 4 ice cubes

If your morning routine doesn’t allow for steaming a whole pumpkin, here are some brands of BPA-free canned pumpkin:

Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A, fiber and iron. Blackstrap molasses is my favorite sweetener to use in the fall. It’s mineral-rich, full of manganese, copper, iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium. The ground flax seeds are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and of course cinnamon is great for satisfying a sweet tooth and reducing inflammation.

Blend this up for a delicious, satisfying breakfast!
