Smoothies are a great way to pack in nutrients in one delicious drink; but sometimes you can get into a recipe rut. So over the next three months I’ve partnered with Puritan’s Pride to put pizzazz in my smoothies with protein powders and superfoods-based products that can tuck in more nutrients more efficiently. Each month, I’ll be sharing my superfood-packed smoothie and would love to hear about your best smoothie recipes, too.  Find out more about Puritan's Pride

PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE:  1 cup pumpkin puree (make sure no other ingredients other than pumpkin), 1 cup soy milk, 1/2 banana, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, ¼ tsp vanilla extract, one scoop Puritan’s Pride unflavored soy protein powder . Blend all the ingredients; serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg on top!  
The recipe came from Brooke Alpert, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., of B Nutritious and author of The Sugar Detox
Pumpkin is a superfood because it is high in vitamin A, which supports healthy vision and helps support immunity. Also a good source of potassium, pumpkins can help your heart and muscles. Interesting pumpkin fact- pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc, a nutrient important for immunity.
