Don’t call it a smoothie! I hate that word (and veggie, hoodie, onesie, you get it – the dumbing down of language). Anyway…..
Start with that sliced frozen banana (half a banana works fine). Open up a can of pumpkin. I like Trader Joe’s Organic Pumpkin and use 1/3 of the can. Add your milk. I use unsweetened almond or cashew milk, but it’s your choice. At least a cup, more if you need it.
Yesterday I mentioned PLNT brand plant-based protein powder. I use vanilla for some shakes, but the chocolate version is so good! So add a scoop. I’m liberal with cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice. These ‘warm’ spices are so good for you. And, of course, top it off with a sprinkling of bee pollen, just because you should.
These two blender drinks will get you going in the morning, with plenty of good protein, low fat and sugar, low carb, and tremendous satisfaction. Cheers!
Note: I didn’t mention kale in either post, but I do toss it in occasionally. To save kale, freeze it! Eliminates the need for ice.
