- Sep 15, 2015
As we move into fall, it’s easy to settle into lazy days and comfort food. Harvest-themed treats, pumpkin spice this and that—temptations surround us. Maintain the pre-summer momentum and resist the pound cakes and whole-milk lattes. Instead, try this healthy smoothie recipe from Food Network that will satisfy your seasonal cravings and leave you feeling refreshed.
Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe:
- Pumpkin puree – ½ cup
- Nonfat plain yogurt – ½ cup
- Ice cubes – ¾ cup
- Maple Syrup – 2 tablespoons
- Apple cider vinegar – 1 tablespoon
- Fresh ginger – ½ piece
- Pinch of ground cinnamon
Aside from its delicious taste, the pumpkin-ginger smoothie is simple to prepare. Pour all listed ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth. Modify as desired—this is your health drink. If you want less sugar, add just one tablespoon of syrup. For a richer texture, try reduced fat or regular plain yogurt as an alternative. For muscle building, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder and mix well. There are many variations that will capture the essence of this fall-themed smoothie, but try to keep it minimal and light.
