Autumn Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

I would never complain about the ability to travel, but sometimes you miss the little things from back home, like everything that comes with the changing of the seasons; waking up to brisk morning air, the amber fall colors, leggings and sweaters, changing your coffee order from cold brew to hot latte, sitting around a warm fire, and most importantly pumpkin flavored everything.

So when I came across canned organic pumpkin purée in a Hawaiian market I had to make my move. A little taste of fall along with plenty of vitamin A, heart health fats, and anti-inflammatory spices that will aid in detoxification and tonitfy your digestive system.

I have recently been using Dawn vegan protein powder by Helio, it is packed with superfoods and tastes delicious, but this smoothie can be made with your protein powder of choice!

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1 package of Dawn Protein (or 2 scoops vanilla protein of choice)

1/2 cup canned coconut milk

1/2 can pumpkin purée

1 tablespoon Golden Milk blend (or powdered turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cardamon and ashwaganodha)

1 banana

2 tablespoons macadamia nut butter (or nut butter of choice)

1/2 cup water

4-5 ice cubes

Directions:

Throw it all in a blender and go! Add more water if you prefer smoothies less thick, add less to turn this into a smoothie bowl. Op with crushed nuts, cinnamon, turmeric and granola.
