I posted this recipe on Freshly Grown’s FB page as well as my own personal page and a friend asked if I could post it here, too, so she could Pin it. Um…yes!! I love it when friends and readers give me ideas or ask me to write about certain topics, etc. (which reminds me, a homemade salad dressing list and how to shop organic on a budget is on the books). Granted, Freshly Grown is only 2 1/2 months old and I am technically still a newbie in the whole foods blog world, but I really dig the sense of community that is starting to take place. Thank you if you’ve liked a post, commented, shared or liked Freshly Grown on Facebook. Please keep the love going! It means the world to me because not only do I get to be a part of spreading the message of how we can take back our health through whole foods and proper nutrition, but you do as well as you share. It is truly phenomenal how what we put into your bodies can completely change our lives, either way.
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake
3/4 c. unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk drink
1/2 c. pumpkin (fresh or canned, fresh has more nutrients)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or nutmeg) or pumpkin pie spice recipe
1/4 tsp. of ginger spice
1 ripe banana
Few cubes of ice (not too many or it will taste watery, you can use a frozen banana in place of ice if you have one)
Blend & Enjoy.
Pumpkin pie in a glass!
You can always add a touch of raw honey if your banana isn’t ripe enough
Great Lakes Gelatin powder is an incredible way to get protein, collagen, gut healing benefits all in one. Think bone broth in powder form. It is flavorless, highly absorbable and dissolves easily in liquids. I use it everyday in my coffee and only use this as my protein powder now.
