KETO Friendly Golden Pumpkin Spice Power Blend Smoothie (includes Vegan options)

1 cup of unsweetened milk: Almond or Flax Milk
2 tbsp. pumpkin seed protein powder
½ cup cauliflower florets (frozen)
¼ cup unsweetened sliced peaches or sliced carrots (frozen)
½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. avocado oil
1 packet (1 tsp.) zero calorie sugar substitute (optional)
Pour milk into a blender.
Add protein powder.
Add remaining ingredients.
Blend on high speed until smooth- about 1 minute.
- Buying and using frozen cauliflower and peaches (or carrots) adds convenience, helps reduce waste, eliminates the need to add ice to your smoothie, and helps make a smooth consistency.
- Pre-measure the cauliflower and peaches (or carrots) ahead of time, put them in small storage bags or other containers, and store in the freezer so when you’re ready to make a smoothie the ingredients are ready to go.
- Choose a non-dairy milk alternative product fortified with calcium and vitamins A, D, and B12.
*Customize your smoothie with your choice of milk. If you must avoid tree nuts (almond), flax milk is a keto-friendly alternative.
