Pumpkin-Pie Thrive Smoothie

This is such a fun way to load up on your nutrition with the #5tothrive whilst getting in those holiday feels! Traditionally, ginger is not in pumpkin pie, but because it’s such a warming spice and goes so well with this Thrive Smoothie I decided to leave it in, however, if you prefer it without, please – do you! “Pie-Season” as we call it in our home is a time where I make my delicious grain, sugar, dairy-free – you guessed it, pies! My family loves my You’re My Pumpkin Pie, Apple Of My Pie and Easy as Blueberry Pie, although typically the first two are made during the holidays. This ‘pie-in-a-glass’ is the perfect brekky helping you to balance out your blood sugar avoiding those holiday blood sugar spikes, crash and crave cycles.

Ingredients

  • 300g 1¼ Cups Unsweetened almond milk

  • 45g 1½ Cups Dark Leafy Greens

  • 30g 2 Tbsps Fibers to choose from: Chia (thicker smoothie), or ground flax, or acacia (thinner smoothie & most gentle), or psyllium husk or powder (no more than 1 Tbsp, as it’s super thick – mix with 1 Tbsp of another fiber here), or use a combination. Start with and if you’re still hungry add an extra Tbsp next time. Drink plenty of water when increasing fiber intake and go slow.

  • 30g 1 Tbsp Cashew Butter

  • 20g 1 Serving Protein Powder (is not the weighted measurement it is the amount of protein ~ vanilla flavour based for best results)

  • 40g 2 Inch Knob Carrot, skin on

  • 15g 1 Inch Knob Fresh Ginger (Optional – not in traditional pumpkin pie, but delicious in this!)

  • 1g ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (I use Simply Organic or Frontier brands)

  • Optional ½ Cup Ice Cubes

Directions

  • In a high speed blender, add in all liquids.
  • Add in all remaining ingredients.
  • Blend until creamy smooth and well integrated. Pour, drink and enjoy!

Notes

  • Storage: Smoothies are best consumed immediately after blending to prevent oxidation and for best taste, nutrient density, and flavor. I recommend having your ingredients prepped ahead of time and quickly blending before you head out the door if you are taking this on your way to work, or out with you. Thrive smoothies are potable too!
