When I got home from work, I decided I would make it. For once, I already had all the ingredients listed in a recipe. I didn't have a real lunch because my afternoon was crazy at work, and I don't know when the hubs will be home for dinner today, so I made it as soon as I got home.
In case you didn't click on the recipe link, here are the ingredients:
- 1/2 cup pumpkin (canned or freshly cooked)
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- Approx. 2 T vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- pinch of ground ginger
Note: I have refrigerated unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
Pumpkin from Trader Joe's. I don't usually go out of my way for organic.
Vanilla protein powder by BioChem (isn't that a high school science class?)
I just liked the way the almond milk sat on top of the pumpkin mush.
The verdict? Thumbs up. Fantastic!
My only regret is that I did not have pre-frozen banana. I will be sure to have some in the freezer for the next time I make this (yes, there will be a next time!) After making it, I threw in a couple ice cubes to swirl around since the only thing cold in this was the almond milk.
Thanks to eating bird food for this great smoothie recipe! I have not checked out her site before, but I am appreciative of her sharing her recipe with fitsugar!
And because of my hectic afternoon (today was a long day... is it really only Tuesday?), I am looking forward to one of these later tonight. Flying Dog Classic Pale Ale. A nice amber-y pale ale.
