Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie

October 8, 2013

Ah fall is here, and so are a series of blog post recipes from our wonderful Elation Centre members.

This one is from Erin. We met years ago through training for 5km races through marathons, and actually her mom, dad, husband, sisters all run and we’ve all trained together over the years. Erin also is a recent ‘grad’ of the   5-Day Cleanse, and has become something of a Smoothie Guru.

This smoothie replicates the flavours of a pumpkin pie with no added sugar or fat like the pie will give you + added protein from the chia and protein powder.

My favorite Protein Powder is  Sunwarrior, it’s 100% raw sprouted brown rice, easy to digest, alkaline, an amazing 30 grams of protein and with only 70 calories this stuff is amazing!

This is the perfect smoothie for breakfast, post run or yoga and the perfect compliment to our beautiful fall weather. So good please try it!!!

    I laughed when I say this! This is my favorite smoothie! I’ve also made this by using a frozen banana! I also add some blackstrap molasses (oops! sugar!) and a nub of fresh ginger!
