In the spirit of this spooky holiday I decided to whip up a unusual (to my routine anyways) and very impromptu smoothie this morning. Pumpkin puree was obviously going to be in the mix but the rest I just winged from there. I was craving a veggie omelet but couldn’t think of a way to give it a festive twist so here’s a new smoothie to add to the mix!
- 1 frozen banana
- 7 almonds
- 1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt or coconut yogurt (omit for a less thick texture)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- Dash of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and sweetener (last ingredient is optional)
Calorie Count: 350- Not too bad for all the candy I see in the future for the rest of my day!
Also please keep in mind the bigger things in life than silly costumes, sweet treats, and spooky jokes- Keep everyone on the east coast in your thoughts and prayers!
Most importantly be safe and remember calories don’t count today… right? We’ll be dancing them all off tonight anyways…
