After this past weekend, are you in need of something to lighten you up?

Would you rather just be eating pumpkin pie?

Yeah, I’m with you on that one. I don’t care how many times I’ve had it, I love pumpkin pie and I wish it stuck around longer than just two months.

What keeps my cravings at bay these days? Pumpkin Pie Smoothies.

If you follow any health blogs, you’ve probably seen a recipe or two similar to this sometime in the last couple of months, for good reason.

Though it may sound a little strange, it tastes totally delicious and is completely healthy and safe for every day consumption. One of these smoothies has less than 300 calories per serving, over 1,000 mg of potassium, 388% vitamin A, 40% vitamin B6, and over 25% vitamin C. Of course, this depends on the type of protein powder you use, but it’s a nutrient powerhouse no matter what type of protein you choose.

Give it a try. You won’t be sorry.
