High Protein Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Disclosure: By posting this recipe I am submitting this pumpkin pie smoothie recipe to a recipe contest by Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs, one of the sponsors of the conference I recently attended, Blog Brulee. I received free product, but was not compensated for my time. As always all opinions are my own, and I truly love these pasteurized eggs!
Hope you’ll having a chill evening in watching spooky movies or out spooking everyone else out. I’ll be spending a quiet evening in watching Hocus Pocus. I’ve already got all my partying and getting the crap scared out of me out of the way. Kinda excited to relax.
Ok, I’m really struggling with this blogging business here. I’ve been out of the mode, with important tasks taking my time, and computer problems, but that needs to change. So here we are, just 1 week late, but none less delicious! Hence the need for a quiet night in.
I wracked my brain for a delicious and different way to use a raw egg, since Davidson’s Safest Choice eggs are pasteurized so you can eat them raw. I mean how could I not, especially during the Halloween season. So, expect the unexpected protein source in your beloved breakfast smoothie. The pasteurization process kills those nasty salmonella germs so you can sleep well tonight knowing that you’ll be safe from sickness.
So are you pumpkin-ed out yet? Sure hope not, because this is now officially the best way for you to start your chilly fall day. It may not warm you up, but it’ll fill you up with delicious and satisfying protein with a healthy dose of pumpkin pie spice. Move aside protein powder and peanut butter, this pasteurized egg is the next best thing to add to your daily smoothie.
So, here’s the recipe, be bold & enjoy, and think Gaston…. brawn not personality obvi.
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 raw Davidson's Safest Choice pasteurized egg
- 1/4 cup milk + more if thinner smoothie is desired
- 1/2 tablespoon honey or 1/2 teaspoon artificial sweetener
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Add all ingredients to blender, blend until smooth.
