For the past couple months I have been hands down addicted to my Vita-mix! Usually I buy something, use it a few times, then it gathers dust on the shelf… but not this time. The Vita-mix is useful all the time!! This morning I was in a hurry and craved a nutrient dense breakfast fast. Grabbing some things I always have on hand (canned pumpkin, shelled hemp seeds and almond milk) I could easily throw together a protein packed smoothie that gave me the energy I needed to get through the morning!
Yes I’m in the car and in drive, but NO I’m not actually moving… I’m at a red light (; it would be very dangerous to take pictures while driving: not recommended…
Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened original
2 Tbsp. WHV raw cinnamon cashew spread (this could be substituted with 2 Tbsp. cashew butter and 1/4-1/2 tsp. cinnamon)
1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 dried dates
1 tsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. hemp seeds
4 ice cubes
Place ingredients into the Vita-mix, or a powerful blender, and blend! Pour into you travel mug, cup or jar (yes I’m using a roasted red pepper jar… no judgement) and enjoy! It’s good to choose a mug that fits into your cup holder if you’re going to be on the move.
