1/3 can of pumpkin
1 pitted date
1/2 container coconut yogurt (Lavva brand has no added sugar) or 2 % full-fat dairy yogurt with no added sugar
Protein powder (works with vanilla, chocolate, and unflavored)
1/4-1/3 cup of rolled oats
Dairy-free milk – add to the top
2 TBSP almond butter
1 tsp ground flaxseeds
Blend in a blender or Nutribullet.
* Add more or less ice depending on desired thickness.
This smoothie meets your vitamin A needs, is full of cholesterol lowering fiber, prebiotics, healthy essential fatty acids, iron, potassium, vitamin B6, and protein.
It will help balance your blood sugar, keep you full for longer, provide you with necessary amino acids, and tastes just as good as a pumpkin spice latte!
To convert this to a “snack” or dessert smoothie, take out the oatmeal and decrease almond butter to 1 TBSP.
