Mornings around here are pretty crazy. Wake up, get the baby ready, wake up the boys, get them breakfast, make coffee, and head out the door. I forgot breakfast for myself!
That was a pretty common morning in our house and I would often just skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast is just not good for you. Blood sugar can spike, your body will start to store fat instead of burn it, and those donuts at the office look even more delicious on an empty stomach. I discovered that smoothies are a quick and nutritious way to start my day.
My absolute favorite smoothie is pumpkin spice! Here’s how I make it.
In a blender combine:
- 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- Milk to reach desired consistency
