Pumpkin Pie Smoothie? Yes Please

Travis grew some pumpkin pie pumpkins. I've been making a lot of pumpkin things:
  • Soups
  • Pies
  • Crisps
  • Smoothies
Recently I got HydroPea protein to review. Usually I add dried and ground kale to all my protein powders. I didn't do that this time. The reason is because the powder is pretty packed in the container. Possibly I will when it's down 1/2 way.

I used the HydroPea Protein Powder in a smoothie. We have one almost every morning. 

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie, for 4: 
  • 2 scoops of HydroPea Protein Powder
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 4 frozen bananas 
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop of dried ground kale
  • Whipped cream + a sprinkle of nutmeg for the topping
You can make the recipe above, or substitute things. I could see adding dates, pumpkin pie seasoning, ginger, or regular milk. You could even leave the kale out.

Truth: I hardly make the same exact smoothie more than once.
Another Truth: I liked this smoothie a lot!
The protein powder didn't make it taste chalky or gritty at all. I've had that happen with protein powders in the past. Not this one.

The smoothie sounds so good! Jason loves using protein powder when he's lifting. I'll have to tell him about this one. If it's not gritty or chalky, I might like it too!

That's fun that you mix up the smoothies almost every time. We have only tried a few flavors. My oldest son is a huge fan though, and he and his daughter have smoothies all of the time. He also uses the protein powder in his (but he doesn't put it in hers). :)
