Healthy Pumpkin Protein Smoothie Recipe

  • 1/2 cup organic pumpkin
  • One handful, approximately 8-12 raw, organic pecans, walnuts or almonds
  • 1 knuckle fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 organic carrots
  • 1-2 scoops of your favorite protein powder (Pure Paleo vanilla, Vital Whey vanilla or a non-GMO, organic vegetarian pea protein)
  • 2-3 cups of filtered water
  • Ice

Optional Add-ins:

  • 1-2 tsp. maca powder
  • Frozen banana chunks
  • Fresh turmeric root and a sprinkle of black pepper
  • 1-2 scoops plain Nutri-Clear Detox powder
  • Large handful of your favorite leafy green

Place ingredients into a Vitamix or high-powered blender. Blend until smooth!

The kids will love this too – just omit the maca powder and instead add frozen banana chunks.
