Pumpkin Chai Smoothie

Since it’s after Labor Day and white jeans are no longer allowed, I figured it was safe to bust out the first of many, many pumpkin recipes to come!

I gave you all a little hint last week in my PB&J Smoothie post:

um, yeah, this just totally happened...

um, yeah, this just totally happened…

I hope you’re all okay with this.  Especially since last year I kicked off the pumpkin theme in August with my Pumpkin Cravings post.

I don’t think I need to remind you, but I will anyway – pumpkin is packed with vitamin A and fiber, is low in calories and fat AND is considered a superfood.  Just make sure you’re buying canned pumpkin vs. the canned pumpkin pie, they are most definitely not the same.

Pumpkin Chai Smoothie

By Healthy Girl and the City

What you need:

  • 1 3/4 to 2 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 c pumpkin
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 2 tsp chia
  • 2 dashes cinnamon
  • 2 dashes nutmeg
  • 2 dashes ginger
  • handful of spinach (for even more nutrients.  BOOM.)
  • 2 scoops Shaklee 180 Vanilla or Vanilla Chai (or your favorite protein powder of choice)
  • 2 ice cubes (optional)

What to do:

Throw in a blender and drink up!

PUMPKIN IS BACK! (don't be alarmed by the green tinge, that's the spinach)

PUMPKIN IS BACK! (don’t be alarmed by the green tinge, that’s the spinach)

So good, so fall, so healthy and so filling – can’t beat that!

Now I’m off for a little yoga.  Namaste.
