WELLNESS WEDNESDAY – Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie Recipe (Dairy Free, gluten free, paleo friendly, vegan)

Hey Chicks,

It’s is post Thanksgiving and I have  about 3 cans of canned pumpkin (not the pie filling but just pumpkin) leftover and I have been stuck on what to use it for.  Since I am back on my smoothie kick, I was on the hunt for a delish recipe to incorporate it into my morning drink.

CANNED PUMPKIN

Here is a fab Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie inspired by a version that I found online at Maoomba.com. I made a few changes to suit my tastes and get some more greens in too :)

CHICK FEED: PUMPKIN PIE POWER SMOOTHIE RECIPE

  • 6 ice cubes (I froze my coconut milk in ice cubes in advance
  • 2/3 cup non dairy milk  (I used 1/2 cup coconut and 1/2 cup water)
  • 1 fistful of baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1 ripe banana (look for the spotty ones..they are extra sweet!)
  • 1 Tbsp flax meal
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (great source of healthy fats)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or allspice

Optional: Add in protein powder of your choice.  If not adding protein powder, try adding hemp hearts or drink with your eggs at breakie for a good balance of protein, fibre and healthy fats.

Directions
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
