Clean Eats: Clean Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Recipe

The crisp Fall air has been upon us, Halloween has come and gone (we survived the sugar hangovers, right?), but the great flavors of the season are still in full bloom!

For me, that triggers a small obsession with PUMPKIN!

I love the look, smell and taste of all things PUMPKINS!

Not only do they look and taste good, but pumpkin is incredibly healthy as well.  Pumpkin is packed with vital anti-oxidants vitamins – such as the A, C & E. . This jack-o-latern vegetable we eat is also very low in calories yet good source of fiber, flavonoid poly-phenolic antioxidants like leutin, xanthins and carotenes.

I’ve been having fun making stews, soups and smoothies with it, so have to share what I had for breakfast this morning:

TARYN’S PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE

1/2 cup canned Pumpkin Puree (organic if you can)

1/2 medium banana

4 tbsp of coconut milk (the pure canned stuff!)

6oz water 

ice (optional)

cinnamon, pumpkin spice (clean, no added sugars), nutmeg to taste

10 raw almonds

Put all ingredients in your blender and mix until frothy and ENJOY!

I’ve also thrown in 1/2 cup of pumpkin in my  Shakeology and that’s a delicious treat as well!

If you try it, I’d love your feedback below in the Comments section, or if you have made a clean one you care to share….please do below!!!
