PUMPKIN PIE HIGH PROTEIN GREEN SHAKE RECIPE by VEGA

Are you looking for a quick and easy recipe that will use up the leftover pumpkin puree from the holidays or from making your own homemade pumpkin puree? You and the kids will LOVE this delicious high protein green smoothie recipe that’s more like a dessert milkshake!

There are only a handful of recipes with simple ingredients you typically have in your fridge.

We like to use frozen banana for a thicker shake and our favorite plant-based protein in vanilla (Vega).

This thick shake is a piece of cake for any type of blender you’ve got!

Best Meal Planning App

This is a non-dairy post workout green smoothie if you use a milk substitute however, for a non vegan after dinner treat you could use regular milk and/or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PUMPKIN

Carotenoids such as beta-cryptoxanthin found in pumpkin have shown the might diminish the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.

The pumpkin is also rich in beta-carotene, while its seeds contain the most valuable nutrients for fighting arthritis (so don’t throw out those pumpkin seeds, roast them!).

Pumpkins and other squash can help prevent heart conditions, lunch conditions, and relieves constipation (1 cup puree contains 7.1 grams of fiber) and also relieves hemorrhoids.

SO EAT YOUR PUMPKIN!
