Pumpkin Pie Smoothie protein shake recipe (534x800)

This smoothie is a great snack or post-run meal because it’s packed with a good ratio of carbs and protein. You should aim to refuel with something that’s about a 4 to 1 or 3 to 1 carbohydrate to protein ratio. This includes things like chocolate milk, yogurt, a turkey sandwich, Clif Bars…

Or this smoothie!

Pumpkin is really good for you!

But um, why?

It’s low in calories and packed with vitamins and fiber.

Pumpkin Protein Shake Nutrition information recipe (800x800)

I used vanilla greek yogurt for the protein in this recipe but you can use regular vanilla yogurt or another flavor that may compliment the pumpkin pie spice flavor. I love using yogurt in smoothies and other recipes because it’s has protein and probiotics. And beyond the nutrition benefits – it adds a creaminess to smoothies that makes it taste like dessert!

This is a super easy recipe you can enjoy as a light post-run meal or snack. Let me know if you try it!

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake Recipe

Ingredients:

1/3 cup pumpkin (canned, plain)
1 6 oz vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 packet sugar or stevia
ice (4-5 big cubes)

Directions: Blend all ingredients thoroughly.  Top with your favorite granola or nuts.

(Add ice to thicken if necessary, use less ice if you want it thinner and easier to drink.)

Enjoy!

I topped mine with nuts and extra nutmeg. There’s just something about nutmeg that makes it smell, feel, taste… like pumpkin pie!
