Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie | MOD Appliances
100g cooked pumpkin (steamed, boiled or roasted)
35g banana, chopped & frozen (roughly ½ small banana)
2 dates, pitted
1x serving vanilla protein powder
35g (⅓C) oats
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice (or ⅓ tsp cinnamon + ¼ tsp ground ginger)
185 ml (¾ C) milk of choice
Handful of ice cubes
1 TBSP of chia seeds, flaxseeds or psyllium husk
Your favourite granola or sliced banana
Add all the ingredients into a high speed blender (we love using the MOD Blend Pro);
Blend until everything smooth and incorporated;
Adjust the amount of milk until the desired consistency is reached (different brands of protein powder require different amounts of liquid);
Serve in either a tall glass or bowl. Top with your favourite toppings.
If you are after a thicker consistency, add in the optional add-ins (psyllium husk is over favourite and it's loaded with fibre) and allow your smoothie to sit for five minutes before serving to thicken slightly.
Trust us, it's delicious!
