Well it’s officially fall! Cooler temperatures mean heavier and heartier foods, like squash, sweet potatoes, garlic, not to mention all the pumpkin we can stand through Thanksgiving! Pumpkin is loaded with all the good stuff including vitamins and minerals. You just have to go easy on all that pie!!
Pumpkins are high in fiber, almost 3 grams per cup!! Fiber aids in weight-loss, slimming your waist-line, and helps to keep you feeling fuller, longer. Pumpkins are also low in fat, help boost your immune system, reduces the risk of cancer, and are high in Vitamin A which helps to improve vision.
So here’s my new fall recipe for Pumpkin Smoothies! So easy and quick to make! Stay tuned for my fall/winter cookbook coming soon!!
1 C almond milk
1 C pumpkin chopped
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp all spice
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp agave nectar or honey
Add in all ingredients including ice, then blend until smooth.
