Pumpkin Green Monster SmoothiePosted: October 14, 2014
In honor of Halloween and the season of pumpkin everything, we’re replacing bad monsters (300 calorie, 38 grams of sugar pumpkin lattes) with good monsters by inviting this recipe into our kitchen.
The creamy shake is packed full of nutrition and fill-you-up fiber, making it a great choice to add to your weekly, or even daily, breakfast rotation.
Feel free to play around with any toppings, as well as the thickness by adjusting the amount of soy milk you add to the blender. Sometimes we let this green monster spread its mighty power to a bowl, and dive in with our spoon instead of a straw. Regardless, get this good guy on your (table)side.
Pumpkin Green Monster Smoothie
- 1/2 cup kale
- 1/2 cup spinach
- 1 cup soy milk
- 1 frozen banana
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- Scant 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Maple syrup, optional
- Toppings: Cinnamon, toasted pumpkin seeds, and/or walnuts
Combine kale, spinach, soy milk, banana, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Depending on your blender, you may need to scrape down the sides with a spatula.
Pour into a glass and add a straw. Top with any toppings of your choice. Taste, and add maple syrup, if desired.
