Who doesn’t love a good smoothie? Honesty, I start most of my days with a quick smoothie for breakfast, so when Puritan’s Pride asked me to team up with them for a seasonal superfood smoothie challenge, it was a no brainer!
Over the next 3 months, I’ll be sharing my superfood-packed smoothie recipes and would love to hear about your best smoothie recipes, too.
Let’s start with a little info on Puritan’s Pride.

Here’s a great Fall smoothie recipe from Brooke Alpert, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., of B Nutritious and author of The Sugar Detox. (She’s also a spokesperson for Puritan’s Pride. Awesomeness!)
PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE:
*1 cup pumpkin puree (make sure no other ingredients other than pumpkin)
*1 cup coconut milk or milk of choice
*1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
*¼ tsp vanilla extract.
Blend all the ingredients; serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!
*I used unsweetened almond milk and added a scoop of Puritan’s Pride Soy Protein Isolate Powder Natural, and 1/4 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt! So delish!
Pumpkin is an awesome superfood high in vitamin A, which supports healthy vision and helps support immunity. Also a good source of potassium, pumpkins can help your heart and muscles.
And since it is pumpkin carving season, here’s an interesting pumpkin fact- pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc, a nutrient important for immunity!
This smoothie was super yummy and so filling!
