Day 1 of 30 Day Recipe Challenge

It’s definitely pumpkin season!

Everyone is already talking about their favorite pumpkin recipes and stopping at their favorite coffee place for a pumpkin spice smoothie.

To avoid all the extra stuff (if you know what I mean) – I like to whip something up at home and know exactly what is in my favorite pumpkin treat – like protein


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 serving of high-quality Vanilla Protein (I use Nutrimeal by USANA Health Sciences)
  • 1 cup chilled chai teaPumpkin-Chai-Latte-Vegan
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • tiny pinch of ground clove
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 4 ice cubes


Add all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  It’s as simple as that.  Then enjoy!

Note:  I make a pitcher of chai tea every couple of days, so for this recipe, I just use 1 cup from there.  You can easily make a cup of tea and then just use that.
