You knew it was coming eventually!
Since I’m so obsessed with Pumpkin Yogurt, I figured it was time to venture into Pumpkin Smoothies!
My mom is also vegetarian and feels she doesn’t get enough protein (I feel like the protein issue is overblown, but if she feels she needs more protein, then she does). She picked up this type of Soy Protein Powder:
I suggested she buy whey protein next time, especially because she takes hormones (excessive soy has been loosely based to higher instances of breast cancer).
This smoothie tasted like pumpkin pie in a blender!
My smoothie contained:
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
- 5 ice cubes
- 2 scoops protein powder
- 1 and 1/4 cup vanilla rice milk
- Drizzle maple syrup
- Lots of cinnamon
- 1 sliced banana
And on the side, I had a slice of toast with hot pepper raspberry preserves, which was delicious and tasted exactly as you would expect!
And… I’m off to squeeze in a workout. Today is another true vacation day, and I’m excited to spend time with mom.
What’s your favorite type of smoothie?
