BikiniBOD Food: Skinny Vanilla Pumpkin Smoothie

We love following our healthy eating plan for weight loss. We also really, really love pumpkin pie. Do you see the dilemma here? Staying on track around this time of year can be tough, as so many warm-you-up treats are deliciously overloaded with calories. How does a Bikini Beauty keep her beach body year round while still enjoying the flavors of the season?

This Vanilla Pumpkin Smoothie hits the spot. It packs all of the decadence of fall without making you pack on the pounds, with only 2 grams of fat and 7 grams of protein per serving. Enjoy as a thick and creamy breakfast or sweet midday treat that can even provide the energy you need to power through leg day.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup coconut or almond milk
  • ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (more or less to taste)
  • 6-8 ice cubes

Directions:

  • Combine everything in a blender until smooth. Sprinkle a bit of extra pumpkin pie spice on top for flair.
  • Makes two servings.

Nutritional Estimates Per Serving: 175 calories, 2.2 g fat, 31.7 g carbs, 3.8 g fiber, 7.3 g protein
