It seems each fall everyone finds a new favorite vegetable, pumpkin. From Starbucks to Trader Joe's the pumpkin flavored products abound, but if I'm being truthful... most of them just aren't that healthy for you! That Pumpkin Spice latte is filled with saturated fat and your daily allowance of sugar, so while it might be fine as a treat... skip it as part of your daily routine. The same goes for all of those pumpkin cookies, candies & ice cream I saw at Trader Joe's over the weekend.You can crack open your own can of pure pumpkin pie puree and make some great things and you'll be getting all the goodness of eating REAL pumpkin. Not the fake stuff pumped into all of the above products.
So here's my favorite fall-time Shakeology recipe using you guessed it, PUMPKIN! So here's how to mix it up and yep, you can enjoy this fall treat daily without having to worry about your waist line.
Combine the following in a blender:
-8oz vanilla cashew milk
-1 scoop Vegan Chocolate Shakeology
-1-2 heaping tablespoons of pure pumpkin puree (this depends on how much you LOVE pumpkin)
-1 tsp raw honey (you're allowed up to 1tsp daily on the 21 Day Fix!)
-1/8 tsp cinnamon
-1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-6-8 cubes of idea
Blend thoroughly on high for 1-2 minutes until shake is smooth & creamy. You'll find the pumpkin gives it a very smooth & pudding-like consistency, which makes it filling & delicious! ENJOY.
