Pretty much every morning I start my day with a smoothie. Now my version of a smoothie is super thick. I like to eat it with a spoon and not drink it. I find it way more satisfying. I also sometimes do one in the evening as a dessert if I want something to snack on after dinner. I really love the combo of pumpkin and banana together, it makes a thick and creamy texture just like soft serve. I’m trying to limit my sugar so I probably wouldn’t have this everyday, because bananas are a little on the high side sugar wise. You could omit the banana though and I bet it would still be good, or just use half a banana. This recipe is vegan, dairy free, free from refined sugars and full of vitamins and protein.
*I use a wide mouth mason jar to make my smoothies in. It just screws right on to the base of a blender in place of the pitcher and makes for less clean up since I eat it right out of the jar.
