Pumpkin Spice Green Smoothie

Try this pumpkin spice green smoothie for breakfast tomorrow. The vanilla protein powder and pumpkin spice make this green smoothie taste anything but green. Having a healthy breakfast that’s quick and easy and taste delicious is important to creating habits that you can stick with long-term.

Do you have crazy chaotic mornings? Not having a ton of time to get breakfast ready in the morning doesn’t have to be the reason you aren’t eating something healthy and nutritious. My mornings have been so busy since I started training at the gym I will be working at. Yup I got a job as a trainer! I’m shadowing the owners each morning this week at 5 o’clock in the morning. Needless to say by the time I get home from the gym, I am in a rush to get ready for work and get there on time.

As you can imagine, I doesn’t have a bunch of time to make a big elaborate breakfast (even though I’m starving by the time I get home). However I am not about to go grab something from a drive through or a prepackaged diet bar that’s full of sugars and chemicals. Heck no, I said death to diet food a long time ago.

Pumpkin spice green smoothies is vegan

Most people that try this protein powder end up texting me a few hours later saying that they’re still so full from breakfast. Which is exactly why I recommend it to anyone who is trying to eat healthier without feeling deprived!

The key to making this smoothie super simple is to use frozen spinach. Frozen spinach not only makes this instantly cold and more like a milkshake, but it’s also a money-saving tip! Do you know how much spinach you would have to wilt down to get a bag of frozen spinach? Plus, you don’t have to worry about it going bad on you before you use it! I always have a few bags in my freezer.

Pumpkin Spice Green Smoothie Recipe Tips

To the frozen spinach, add protein powder, chia seeds and your favorite nut butter to the blender. I love almond butter and coconut butter in this pumpkin spice green smoothie! Use your favorite milk, whatever that might be! I love unsweetened coconut milk, it makes the shake thick and very filling! Oh and don’t forget that pumpkin spice, the most important ingredient! Fill all the ingredients in the blender. I use my Ninja Bullet. It’s so convenient, I just take the cup with me to work!

I have to admit to you all, we’ve already been through 2 full jars of pumpkin spice at my house since August. I think we have a problem. But I’m certainly not complaining! Since our fall mornings are still quite hot, I don’t foresee me giving up these green smoothies anytime soon.

Spinach is very good for health and contains lots of iron. The use of protein powder chia seeds and nut butter will give a unique taste. Thanks for informing about this unique and healthy smoothie…
