Pumpkin Power Smoothie


I feel like it’s that time of year when schedules overlap, flu season has arrived, the holidays are near…the list could go on forever.

I know it’s easy to fall into the cycle of not taking care of ourselves during stressful times. Breakfast is a perfect way to take a few minutes to relax, read something uplifting, and eat a meal that makes you feel good. For me, I’ve been reading Maya Angelou’s Letter to My Daughter while I sip on my favorite pumpkin smoothie. I find myself waking up early just to start the day.


Pumpkin Power Smoothie

Yield: 2 adult or 4 children smoothies         Total time: 5 minutes

½ cup canned pumpkin puree
1 ½ cups unsweetened soy or almond milk
2 scoops vanilla protein powder*
½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 frozen banana cut into chunks

Optional Topping:
Vanilla coconut yogurt
Dash of ground cinnamon

Blend until smooth.

You can omit the protein powder and add 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup for sweetness.

I used Hammer Nutrition Vanilla Vegan protein powder for this recipe.

I hope you have a beautiful start to your day!

  1. Love Maya Angelou– and also this smoothie! Looks so simple–with the pumpkin puree to start it out. And I agree about breakfast– a good time to stop and put things in order for the day… Fun to find your blog!
