The Best Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe You’ll Ever Taste
Written by: Kavata Kithome
Okay, you know I love a great smoothie (especially a green one), but I came across a smoothie that literally blew my mind! I could not begin to tell you how delectable this smoothie is, it was so great, I just had to share!
Have I piqued your interest?
Before I share this amazing recipe, here is why you must try it out! It features your usual suspects, spinach, coconut milk, apple, banana and a few unexpected surprises like pumpkin, collagen, etc.
As you may know, spinach, apples and bananas are awesome for you. I would like you to look at the benefits of a few of the unexpected surprises. Three in particular deserve a mention:
While most people think that it is vegetable, pumpkin is actually a fruit. What’s not to love about this fruit? It is full of potassium, beta-carotene, fiber, vitamins A, B6, C and E, riboflavin, potassium, copper and manganese and at least 5 percent of thiamin, folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. It also contains antioxidants. It is an extremely nutrient-dense food, high in vitamins and minerals, but low in calories. Awesome, right?
A sweet and hot spice that is in most people’s spice rack, but did you know that cinnamon is high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, helps fight diabetes, protects heart health, helps defend against cognitive decline, protects brain function, fights infections and viruses, helps fight allergies and can even help prevent and aid candida?
Why is this ingredient amazing? Hydrolyzed collagen is the missing link in supplying amino acids like glycine, proline and lysine that are required by the body to build connective tissue to regulate cell growth. It can benefit hair, skin tissue, muscle, cartilage, ligaments and blood cell growth.
If you are anything like me, you probably don’t want to be bogged down with all the details, you want to get straight to the good stuff, the smoothie. In the words of Drew Canole, “[it is a] mouth-watering, macro-loaded powerhouse.”
There is nothing more awesome than eating/drinking something that is not only nutritious and healthy, but is delicious as well.
Have I wet your taste buds? Did I mention it was delicious?
