Green Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

This smoothie is a delicious way to get orange and green veggies in before you leave the house in the morning! It's mine and my toddler's favorite breakfast. I add whey protein to mine, and to his, a few teaspoons of coconut oil to up the healthy fats.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk canned
  • 1/4 cup water or almond milk
  • 1 banana chopped and frozen
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • fresh nutmeg to taste
  • 5 grams whey protein

Instructions

  • Add yogurt, coconut milk, and almond milk or water to a blender. Then add spinach, ice, and frozen banana. I layer the ingredients liquids first, then spinach, then frozen pieces on top of the spinach to weigh it down, and this is the way it blends the easiest.
  • Add spices and optional protein powder, and blend until the mixture is very smooth and the spinach is entirely broken up in the mixture.
  • Serve with whipped cream or coconut whipped cream for a special treat.

Notes

I generally double this recipe and find that my blender does better with the larger amount, and my son and I share it. **To make a layered smoothie, keep the spinach out of the mixture. After blending, pour half of the smoothie into a cup, and then add the spinach to the half left in the blender and blend until very smooth.
