PROTEIN PACKED PUMPKIN PEANUT BUTTER SMOOTHIE RECIPE

If you’re looking for a super tasty pumpkin smoothie that packs a nutritious punch, look no further!

This high protein, high fiber holiday pumpkin treat is the perfect breakfast, post-workout or even a dessert smoothie that you can make in your high powered blender!

We love using the frozen banana to give this pumpkin smoothie a thick texture, and if you bake and blend FRESH pumpkin, just make sure to chill the pumpkin puree so the smoothie stays cold.

Add in yogurt and orange juice and you have a healthy smoothie with 740 milligrams of potassium per serving, or you can substitute the yogurt with 1/2 cup cashews and almond or soy milk to make this a vegan pumpkin smoothie!

You can also lower the calories and healthy fats by using only 1 Tbsp peanut butter or omitting the sugar, it’s just as good! YUM!!!

Definitely try during our beautiful autumn season, or it would be the perfect spooky beverage for a Halloween Party!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT PUMPKINS

Pumpkin is a fall favorite for many, but with its health benefits it provides, this member of the squash family should be more a part of your regular diet. The orange flesh contains a rich supply of fiber, contributing to digestive health.

One cup of pumpkin puree provides you with 7.1 grams of dietary fiber. Even better, it also contains potassium, also necessary for a healthy digestive system. Pumpkin also contains iron, which helps keep support the immune system.

Another immune system booster that is found in pumpkin is Vitamin A, which not only helps keep your immune system working, but keeps your eyes, bones, and teeth healthy too.

It also protects your cells from damage, which can lead to certain diseases, including cancer. (Source: healthy eating)

  1. 5 stars
    I am waiting for my Fairy Godmother, Godfather or a lucky win to try this totally yummy sounding smoothie. Such yumminess!

    1. 🙂 You can make this smoothie in a regular blender, a high powered one isn’t necessary since there’s no hard or fibrous ingredients! We’re still crossing our fingers for you to win or the wonderful fairies and guardians to look out for you!

  2. I tried the Pumpkin Peanut Butter Smoothie. Wow. It was wonderful. Kind of like eating pumpkin pie in a liquid form. I'm thinking of adding peanut butter and orange juice to my regular pumpkin pie recipe.
