1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 banana, frozen
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
Ice cubes (as needed)
In a blender, combine the canned pumpkin puree, frozen banana, vanilla protein powder, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice, and sweetener of choice.
Add in the rolled oats and chia seeds, if using.
Blend on high until all the ingredients are well combined and the smoothie is creamy and smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, you can add more almond milk to achieve your desired consistency.
Taste the smoothie and adjust the sweetness and pumpkin spice to your liking.
If desired, add ice cubes to the blender and blend again until the smoothie is chilled.
Pour the pumpkin protein smoothie into a glass and enjoy immediately.
