Features

  • dietary needs: vegan, gluten-free
  • nutritional features: high in protein, no added sugar

Ingredient Notes

Labelled ingredients in bowls for making a pumpkin and peanut butter smoothie.
  • peanut butter or powdered peanut butter – both work well, for more peanut butter flavour without adding 4 tbsp of peanut butter, use 4 tbsp powdered peanut butter, for delicious creaminess, use 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • frozen fruit – I like it best with frozen banana but if you can’t do banana, replace with frozen peach
  • protein powder – best with vanilla pea protein-based powder
  • plant milk – any kind works, just make sure you enjoy the taste, I like almond or cashew
  • pumpkin – use plain, canned pumpkin puree, I like Farmers Market best (could be subbed with butternut squash or sweet potato puree, if needed)

Method

Add everything to a blender, starting with the milk, and start blending on low.

Milk, banana, cinnamon and protein powder in a blender container.

Slowly increase the speed to medium or high and blend for 20-30 seconds until completely smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass and enjoy right away!

Notes

  • Peanut Butter: Can be made with powdered peanut butter or peanut butter. For more peanut butter flavour without an extra 200 calories, 4 tbsp of powdered peanut butter works great, however, 2 tbsp of peanut butter is also lovely because it makes it super smooth and creamy.
  • Peanut-Free Option: Use almond butter instead of peanut butter.
  • Sweetening: I don’t add any extra sweetener but for a treat and depending on the protein powder used, you may consider adding add a few drops of liquid stevia, 2 tsp maple syrup or 2-4 soft, moist dates.
  • Make it Larger: For a larger smoothie and additional nutrition, add up to 1 cup cooked frozen cauliflower florets, frozen zucchini chunks or 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato puree.
  • Reduced Sugar: For a lower sugar smoothie, replace the banana with 1.25 cups of frozen peach slices or use 1/2 cup frozen peach and half a frozen banana.

Notes

Peanut Butter: For the most peanut butter flavour, use 4 tbsp of powdered peanut butter. Peanut butter also works great but 2 tbsp gets a little lost amongst the other flavours, however, it does add a delicious creaminess!

Fruit: For less sugar, replace the banana with 1.25 cups of frozen peach slices or use 1/2 cup frozen peach and half a frozen banana.
