It's Fall my friends, and let's face it, you're tempted by pumpkin spice.. EVERYTHING! But, they are not necessarily the healthiest of dietary choices, which could easily send your healthy habits spiraling out of control.. YET you WANT the SPICE! I hear you. That's why this is the third pumpkin spice recipe I've created for you in the past year because, well, I love you! (type "pumpkin spice" into the FitFoodie.tv search bar to see the others)
P.S. This smoothie (a part of the DanceFit Form Fall Meal Plan) also happens to be anti- aging with the addition of collagen. You're welcome.
• 1 frozen banana
• 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I use a vegan pea-based protein w/ zero sugars)
• 1.5 Tablespoons Powdered (grass-fed) Collagen
• 1 Cup Cashew or Coconut Milk
•1/2 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice blend (try mine- Spice Mix for Muffins)
Optional- I also use 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter in mine because I'm obsessed.. but if you're a PS purist, feel free to leave it out ;-)
Topping: Toasted Pumpkin Seeds (1 Teaspoon)
Put all smoothie ingredients in a high speed blender and blend well. Top with extra pumpkin spice and pumpkin seeds. Enjoy and stay beautiful!
