Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
1/2 cup of bananas
1-2 scoops of protein powder (natural or vanilla flavor)…# of scoops depends on your brands serving size
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
1/8 tsp. of nutmeg
1/4 vanilla extract
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (use one with no extra ingredients or sugars added…I like the one from Trader Joe’s)
