Pumpkin Blast Smoothie

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m not gonna lie, I wish I’d shared this with you sooner, but truth is, this might be exactly what you want the day after. Think of it as a pumpkin flavored detox. Bursting with pumpkin pie flavor, but made with carrots and spinach, this is a 100% no-guilt blended treat. 

Also, if you’re looking for a pumpkin pie alternative, I updated my Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins recipe for healthier and protein filled options ;)


  • 6-8 Organic Baby Peeled Carrots
  • Handful Organic Baby Spinach  (about. 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup Organic Pumpkin Puree 
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Organic Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract, Organic
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg

1/2 scoop Whole Foods Plant Based Fit Protein - Vanilla Cinnamon (I wouldn’t do any more than 1/2 scoop or it’ll change the flavor profile of the smoothie)
