How to Make a Nutritious Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Posted by Kristen on Oct 11, 2012
Care for a nutritious, creamy, and light smoothie that tastes like pumpkin pie? We have just the recipe for you. As you're devouring it, feel free to bask in the glow of knowing that you're infusing your cells with natural vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, and cartenoids, all nutrients that are known to reduce risk of just about every degenerative disease that we know of.
Makes one generous serving
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup pure pumpkin (canned)
1 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or the seeds from one half of a vanilla bean
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground ginger
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground cloves
Pinch all spice
1. Place everything in a blender.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. Pour into your favourite glass and sprinkle top with cinnamon and serve!
It's worth noting that it's best to get your vitamin E from pumpkins, avocados, olives, and other foods that are naturally abundant in it. Synthetic vitamin E found in most supplements is an entirely different beast and is best avoided.
Natural vitamin E is essential for healthy blood circulation, protection against free radicals, and proper utilization of oxygen.
Other foods that are rich in natural vitamin E include cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil, raw almonds, carrots, butter, and all dark green leafy vegetables.
