I'm pretty excited to be sharing one of my favorite vegan treats... I mean, drinks, right now. It just so happens to be Fall themed! A pumpkin protein smoothie. I've been wanting to try out a plant-based protein for quite a while now, so when I was was given the opportunity to shop at Target.com for a Kashi® GOLEAN™ Plant Powered Shake, I jumped at the chance.
As you know I am a pretty busy lady - I spend many mornings on the go with G, so my breakfasts are usually in a cup. Protein is essential to my diet so anything that gives me extra energy is amazing. Plus the fact that's it's vanilla flavored, mixed with the pumpkin in this recipe... it's basically a little taste of heaven!
- 1 cup organic almond milk (it can be flavored or unflavored - I like vanilla)
- 1/2 cup organic pureed pumpkin
- 1 organic frozen banana
- 1 scoop of Kashi GOLEAN Vanilla Vinyasa protein powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 3-4 almond milk ice cubes (or you can use regular ice cubes)
This is a pretty simple shake with little to no prep. I keep frozen bananas and almond milk ice cubes on hand at all times because I am such a smoothie drinker! To begin, simply gather your ingredients. Pour each of them into a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth! Top with extra cinnamon or nutmeg, and enjoy a little taste of Fall with some added 15-16 extra grams of protein!
I would definitely use this Kashi GOLEAN protein powder in some pancakes for J when he gets back from the gym (he's been going a bit more frequently these days) and you can even incorporate pumpkin into that too! I love that this product is vegan and gluten-free as well to cater to several types of diets.
