Healthy Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie Recipe with canned pumpkin, yogurt and pumpkin pie spice. It’s a super easy and delicious post-run snack!
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.
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
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.)
I topped mine with nuts and extra nutmeg. There’s just something about nutmeg that makes it smell, feel, taste… like pumpkin pie!
