Smoothie recipe

Since I'm such a big fan of the ingredient pumpkin, I wanted to share with you another healthy and flavorful smoothie recipe.  Pumpkin packs lots of vitamin A so you get the added bonus of that as well.  I make mine with almond milk and add a few cubes of ice to thicken it up a little.

If you want a little more protein, you can add another scoop of protein powder, however, if you do so just add another 1/4 cup of milk.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie 

1 cup milk (skim, soy, or almond)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 banana (frozen)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or allspice)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Blend all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!  Add ice to get the consistency you like.
