Pumpkin season is upon us!
Pumpkin is actually very nutritious. The orange fruit is rich in Vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber, making it a great complex carbohydrate choice.
Antioxidants in pumpkin may also help prevent chronic disease, like cancer and heart disease.
Orange fruits and vegetables have beta-carotene, which has been shown to promote healthy eyesight. You've heard that carrots are good for our eyes - well, so are pumpkins!
This high protein shake makes for a great fall breakfast on-the-go!
You will need:
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup almond milk
1 Tbsp ground flax seeds (not pictured)
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Serve with extra pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin seeds, or pumpkin flavored whipped cream on top.
