Prep Time

5 Minutes

Yields

2 Servings

Ingredients

1½ C canned pumpkin* puree

2 scoops Vanilla protein powder **(or 1 C plain yogurt + ½ tsp vanilla)

1 C soy, almond or other milk

2 tsp grade B maple syrup

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

A pinch cayenne pepper, optional

2 Tbsp sugar-free granola, optional

Directions

Add all ingredients to Vitamix or blender, except the granola , and blend until smooth. Then, add granola and blend a couple of seconds to combine (to maintain a bit of their crunchy texture).

Serve at once or pour into a mason jar to keep for a day or two more.

Notes

*Pumpkin is so amazing for us – loaded with vitamin A and potassium – it helps support lung and eye health, as well as fight hypertension.

**My favorite protein powders are RAW Vanilla protein from Garden of Life or the Vanilla Soy protein powder available from the bulk bins at Mother’s Market.
