Pumpkin Protein Power!

I love Pumpkin Pie
I discovered I love Pumpkin Smoothies too!
YOu can just tell by looking at the bright orange when you open that can that it is super good for you.
Not only is pumpkin loaded with vitamin A and antioxidant Beta carotene (anti inflammatory agent)
It is also a good source of vitamin C, K and E as well as loaded with minerals including magnesium potassium and iron.
This drink will actually help you build muscle, strengthen your immune system (shielding you from cancer causing agents), slow the aging process, improve bone density and much much more!
wow that is a lot to be great full for !

1-2 Cups Ice
1/2 Banana
1 Cup Water or Milk
1/2 Cup Pumpkin puree (be sure to buy 100% pumpkin NOT pumpkin pie filling loaded with sugar!)
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein powder
1/4 tsp ground cloves, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg (OR 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice)
2 tsp peanut butter or almond butter
1 -2 tsp fat free butterscotch Jello pudding mix

Ice Cubes into blender...crush ice
next add the rest of the goodies and puree till smoooooth
Happy Thanksgiving everyone !

Of course I made real pumpkin pie too !
