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!

Happy Halloween!

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.

    Looks like we both have been feeling the pumpkin pie smoothie love 😉 I’ve never heard of Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized eggs – where can you find them? It’d open up so many more high protein recipe options.

    Hi Rebecca! I know this recipe was made with the egg as the main ingredient, but I’m pregnant and can’t have raw egg. Any suggestions for an alternative to egg in this smoothie? Thanks! [also, I know it’s not Fall, but I love pumpkin allllll the time! It’s a problem!]

      Good idea on no raw egg 🙂 You could just omit the egg or add 1 tablespoon flax seeds + 3 tablespoons of water to replace the egg. Same here, pumpkin is totally a year-round food 🙂
