Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted (or sub another sweetener such as 1/2 TBS maple syrup)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree* (option to freeze into cubes)
  • 1/2 TBS cashew butter
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice**
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 2/3 cup*** cashew milk (or milk of choice)

Instructions

  1.  Place all ingredients into blender cup starting with AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites, ending with cashew milk. See notes below regarding frozen pumpkin versus fresh and amount of milk needed.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer pumpkin protein smoothie into cup or travel mug, enjoy!

Recipes Notes:

*I had scooped some canned pumpkin into little balls for smoothies, which helps make the smoothie thicker with no ice. You can also use fresh pumpkin puree/canned pumpkin. Add ice and just liquid.

**DIY pumpkin pie spice: 3 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon + 2 teaspoons Ground Ginger + 2 teaspoons Nutmeg + 1-1/2 teaspoon Ground Allspice + 1-1/2 teaspoon Ground Cloves

***Adjust milk according to desired consistency. Adding more milk with the ingredients as listed will get you a thinner smoothie. If not using frozen pumpkin, you may want less liquid.
