Just a quick smoothie recipe for you as it is fall and I am hoping that since it is November, those of you who have been frequenting the local coffee shops over the last month for your Pumpkin Spiced Latte fix have realized that the mammoth amount of calories, with very little nutrition is adding unnecessary inches to your waistline. Not great for fitting into Holiday evening wear, right? If you have started to cut back, then you are ahead of the game, however for those who have yet to do so and/or want to nourish your body, I offer you the following options.
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
553kcal 37g Protein 57g Carbohydrate 27g Fat
1.5 C Almond Milk, (Homemade or Silk Brand)
.5 C Full Fat Coconut Milk (I like Native Forest)
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie spice
2 Scoop Sunwarrior Vanilla Brown Rice protein or Warrior Blend protein
1 tsp Unpasteurized Honey
1 banana (peeled and frozen)
1 Cup ice
Add a dash of cinnamon on top
*The above serving sizes match my current nutrition goals. For those of you
who aren’t 6’4″ and trying to increase muscle mass, you may want to tweak the recipe.
Now, for those of you who could care less about a smoothie but are still interested in a lower calorie substitute for the store bought Pumpkin Spice Latte, check out this recipe by BrokeAss Gourmet.
