Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Smoothie

20 Mar

For the past couple months I have been hands down addicted to my Vita-mix!  Usually I buy something, use it a few times, then it gathers dust on the shelf… but not this time.  The Vita-mix is useful all the time!!  This morning I was in a hurry and craved a nutrient dense breakfast fast.  Grabbing some things I always have on hand (canned pumpkin, shelled hemp seeds and almond milk) I could easily throw together a protein packed smoothie that gave me the energy I needed to get through the morning!

Yes I’m in the car and in drive, but NO I’m not actually moving… I’m at a red light (; it would be very dangerous to take pictures while driving: not recommended…

Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Smoothie

Serves 1

1 cup almond milk, unsweetened original

2 Tbsp. WHV raw cinnamon cashew spread (this could be substituted with 2 Tbsp. cashew butter and 1/4-1/2 tsp. cinnamon)

1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree

2 dried dates

1 tsp. chia seeds

1 tsp. hemp seeds

4 ice cubes


Place ingredients into the Vita-mix, or a powerful blender, and blend!  Pour into you travel mug, cup or jar (yes I’m using a roasted red pepper jar… no judgement) and enjoy!  It’s good to choose a mug that fits into your cup holder if you’re going to be on the move.
