Pumpkin + Peanut Butter Smoothie

Pumpkin + Peanut Butter Smoothie

With fall just around the corner, I usually start to replace my cold smoothies with a warmer breakfast, like a creamy bowl of oats. However, I'm a sucker for anything pumpkin and so this fall-inspired smoothie was born.

This smoothie is 

  • Low in sugar
  • High in protein
  • High in fiber + healthy fats

It packs a lot of flavor, and tons of vitamins and minerals from the addition of pumpkin. I love a plant-based protein in this smoothie to ensure it keeps me full and satisfied. 

This smoothie will definitely get you in the fall spirit :)

Recipe

Ingredients

1 cup dairy free milk (I use coconut or almond milk)
