Side note- yes, I’m well aware you can see my reflection in the spoon. Honest confession- I’m learning to use my tripod and it’s a work in progress. Or rather, I’m a work in progress ;).
I used a scoop of my favorite pea/rice protein powder in this smoothie bowl. You can also add a tablespoon of peanut or almond butter for some nutty flavor and additional protein/healthy fat boost! And….. don’t forget to add some cinnamon for the perfect final addition!
Time: 5 minutes
1 cup canned pumpkin puree (or fresh, if you’re fancy like that)
1 large ripe banana, frozen
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut-almond milk*
1 scoop your favorite protein powder (unsweet and/or vanilla works well)
1 Tbsp natural peanut butter or almond butter, if desired
Topping options: pumpkin seeds, granola, chia seeds, cinnamon, walnuts, dried fruit, cinnamon, sliced pears, fresh banana slices, whatever sounds good to you!
1.) Combine all ingredients in Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth.
2.) Pour ingredients in bowl, add desired toppings and enjoy!
*1/2 cup or less depending on how thick you like your smoothie bowls
