Pumpkin Chai Smoothie

Here’s a throwback post that is certainly appropriate for this October weekend.  This smoothie matches the season and will be a great way to start the lovely fall day.
Thanks to Smoothie Queen Amy for this great recipe
I can’t wait to make this Pumpkin Chai smoothie! It’s like the marriage of all my favorite things.  It’s around 400 calories, so it’s definitely a meal replacement at this serving size. Here’s the recipe.

Blend the following:
1 1/2 cups milk, or milk alternative (I use almond or coconut because the protein is kickin’)
3/4 cup cooked pumpkin

1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
2 Tbsp. coconut sugar
1/4 tsp Vanilla bean
1/2 banana
