Seasonal Smoothie

Happy Monday friends!

A while ago I shared my favorite smoothie on the blog and now I wanted to share a seasonal spin on a smoothie that I have been loving lately. With fall in full force and the holidays quickly approaching, there is nothing better than a healthy pumpkin smoothie to cool down after a workout or enjoy for an after-dinner treat.

Ingredients: 

  • 1/3 cup pure pumpkin
  • 2 frozen bananas, pre-sliced
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt
  • 2 scoops of your favorite protein powder (I use Protein World Slender Blend vanilla)
  • A drizzle of honey
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Almond milk

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in blender using a splash of almond milk at first
  2. Continue to add almond milk until you reach desired consistency
  3. Pour and enjoy!

Happy Fall ya’ll! Hope you are enjoying this beautiful season!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Hello my friends! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

Today I want to share my favorite smoothie recipe with you. To be honest, I make this smoothie on a weekly basis (I may be addicted). It is the perfect post-workout treat as it has protein, fruit, and is refreshing. It is also a great way to beat the heat on these summer days and perfect to enjoy poolside or at night as dessert. I will share the recipe based on one serving, but it is easy to double or triple the recipe to share with friends.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 tablespoons of PB2 powdered peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of greek yogurt (I use Dannon Light & Fit vanilla flavored)
  • Almond milk- start with 1/4 cup and add more until it reaches a smoothie-like consistency

Directions:

Cut bananas into slices and freeze in Ziploc baggy prior to making a smoothie. Add frozen bananas, PB2, greek yogurt, and almond milk to blender. Blend ingredients together adding more almond milk as necessary until it reaches your desired consistency. Pour into cup of your choice and sip away!

This is such a simple and healthy recipe to enjoy anytime of the day. When we purchased our Ninja blender last summer I was constantly experimenting with smoothie recipes. As soon as I created this recipe I was hooked! The most challenging part is adding the right amount of almond milk. I don’t exactly measure the almond milk but instead I eyeball it and add more as the ingredients blend together.

I usually enjoy my smoothies in this mason-jar like cup from Target that has a lid and straw so it keeps my smoothies cold (and I can’t resist a cute mason jar). I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

Talk to you soon.
