I know. I just shared my chai-spiked pumpkin milkshake. A glorious thing, you all agreed. A few of you asked for the pumpkin smoothie I make. I am currently enjoying these on vacation, so here it is!

We enjoy these smoothies in the morning.

He finds his patch of sunshine and will follow it along the balcony all morning…

You know he’s wondering if his smoothie is ready yet

pumpkin smoothie

serves two

vegan, gluten free, dairy free

4-5 handfuls spinach (a VitaMix full!)
2 cups water
3 scoops vanilla protein
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons sweetener (agave)
ice cubes (optional)

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend; add ice cubes for icy cold smoothie. 

These are easy to make on vacation – you know I travel with my blender. Bring a couple cans of pumpkin with you, and since this road trip was only a few hours drive, I brought my own spinach, too. I always travel with protein powder (I think even if I forget to pack it I have a couple sample packages in my handbag at all times) and pumpkin pie spice is easy enough to pack.

Cheers!

Do you bring food on road trips?
