Fall is here!!! If you’re wanting to do the APPROPRIATE thing and celebrate with copious amounts of pumpkin, but you don’t feel like baking or schlepping for a #basic PSL, I’ve gotcha covered. Sometimes you want your Fall in the form of an afternoon post-work or post-workout pick-me-up. Sometimes you want your Fall to come from the only kitchen appliance you can be bothered to get off the couch long enough to operate. (God bless you, Magic Bullet.) I know, I know…it’s sooo typical to love pumpkin and fall and fall food and pumpkin-y tasting fall foods. But listen, the only thing #basic about this recipe are the ingredients…which you probably already have on hand. So let’s get to it!
What you’ll need…
-3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
-1/3 cup pumpkin puree
-1/3 cup Green yogurt
-1/2 banana, sliced and frozen
-as many shakes of pumpkin pie spice as ya like
if you like it sweet…
–a few drops of vanilla extract and/or
-stevia, to taste
if you wanna get jacked…
-1 scoop vanilla protein powder (this one is yummy.)
if you are me…
Top with whipped cream!
and how it all comes together…
-Put all ingredients into a blender or magic bullet and give it a whir! Add ice if you like that more traditional smoothie consistency. Leave it out if you prefer a consistency more akin to a mango lassi.
-Top with whipped cream, if you’d like, and another shake of pumpkin pie spice!
❤ Happy Fall! ❤
