Do you like Smoothies?

I do!

In fact, my morning doesn’t feel complete unless I’ve had my…

A – Strong cup of CAW-FEE (I’m from NY). 🙂

B – Some form of exercise…I like that there are different forms of exercise to choose from 😉

C – A smoothie packed with lots of fruit and protein.

After all, how else can you guarantee fulfilling your required amount (at least a portion) of  daily fruit intake, while on the run?

So this morning after making a batch of pumpkin muffins (yes, again),

I had some leftover pumpkin puree, so I decided to add it to my smoothie mix.

My, my was it TASTY!

The best part is that it’s simple, quick, filling AND healthy.

For me it’s a no brainer…

Strawberry-Banana-Pumpkin Smoothie

1 cup of light vanilla soy-milk

1/4 cup of vanilla low-fat greek or organic yogurt

3/4 scoop of vanilla protein powder

Approx. 6 frozen strawberries

1 banana

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

Put all ingredients in a blender and…..yes, you guessed it…blend for about 1 minute…

Viola!
