It’s Fall ya’ll and for me, that means pumpkin pie everything! I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never met anything pumpkin pie flavored that I didn’t adore but, well, my waistline doesn’t always tend to agree with me. While I think good old pumpkin pie should be served with each and ever meal for at least the next two months, my trying-so-hard-to-stay-healthy-lifestyle doesn’t quite line up with my pumpkin lovin’ brain! After contemplating giving up pumpkin pie all together (yea, who am I kidding), I got smart and created an amazingly drool worthy Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie that tastes just like pumpkin pie but is perfect for after workouts, as an afternoon snack or simply when I’m having a pumpkin pie craving but don’t want to blow my healthy living goals.
The idea for this easy-to-make Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie started when I was having a major pumpkin craving post workout and my regular old smoothie just wasn’t cutting it. As I looked around my kitchen, I realized that I had everything I needed to create a better-for-me Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie with pureed pumpkin, Greek Yogurt and protein powder. The only question was how to sweeten my smoothie to make it truly taste like pumpkin pie and then answer was with NEW Organic Stevia In The Raw®!
The most recent addition to the In The Raw family of sweeteners, this delicious sweetener is available in convenient packets that provide a truly delicious sweet taste that’s perfect for beverages or sprinkling on fruit…or even making the perfect Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie! With only three calories in each packet and the same sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar, it was the perfect addition to make my creation taste like sweet, satisfying pumpkin pie!
