Nothing says Thanksgiving like pumpkin pie!
Indulging in a healthy smoothie version of the classic dessert is the perfect way to kick off a day of feasting — and enjoy glowing skin as you celebrate!
The bright orange color of pumpkins tells you that they’re loaded with beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. The beta-carotene converts to Vitamin A that neutralizes nasty free radicals, thus preventing wrinkles, and keeping your skin youthful, moisturized, and radiant. Pumpkin is also packed with Vitamin C, another skin-saving antioxidant that protects collagen and keeps your immune system in tip-top shape.
This decadent smoothie will have your health and skin sparkling all through the holiday season!
Fill your blender with:
- 10 oz unsweetened coconut milk
- ½ cup organic pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
- 1 small frozen banana
- 2 Medjool dates (pitted) or 2 tbsp raw honey
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- a pinch of sea salt
Blend ingredients until smooth, sprinkle with cinnamon, and enjoy your Spiced Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.
Have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
