Puritan’s Pride Seasonal Smoothie and Giveaway

Smoothies are so great no matter what time of the year.  I love making a smoothie for a pre-run or post-run quick meal.  I make smoothies for the kids for a quick addition to their breakfast in the morning, an afternoon snack after school.  Smoothies even make for a great dessert in the evening.  With so many options out there to make and come up with, it sure helps when I have Puritan’s Pride and their products to get creative.   I have been lucky enough to join Puritan’s Pride and their three month smoothie campaign.  While I make and share my own recipes, I look forward to seeing yours.

For the next three months, I am partnered with Puritan’s Pride to create and share my own smoothie recipes and how I incorporate them with protein powders and superfoods-based products.

This month’s smoothies are all about Kale and Pumpkin.

Kale is a superfood because it is high in antioxidant Vitamins A and C. Dark leafy greens are great nutrition powerhouses but kale takes the veggie-cake.  Kale also provides omega-3 fatty acid and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). 

Pumpkin is a superfood because it is 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.  Interesting pumpkin fact- pumpkin seeds are a good source of zinc, a nutrient important for immunity.

Super Green Kale Smoothie

Ingredients
2 Cups Coconut Milk {option Almond Milk}
1 Scoop Puritan’s Pride Whey Protein for Her {Vanilla Bean}
1 Banana
1 Scoop Powdered Kale OR 1 cup Fresh Kale
1/2 Green Apple
Ice
*You can opt to do Almond Milk {I prefer plain, zero sugar} or I use light coconut milk.  The coconut milk makes this smoothie a bit creamier and I really enjoy the thick creamy during the holiday/fall season.

Puritan's Pride Kale Super Smoothie

Tropical Pumpkin Smoothie

Ingredients
1/4 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1 Cup Coconut Milk {light}
1 Banana
1 tblsp Almond Butter {Barney Butter}
Cinnamon

  2. I haven’t made a pumpkin smoothie yet this season! But I will!

  3. I may be one of the few bloggers out there that doesn’t like the pumpkin maddness in the Fall. The smell of it just turns me off, I don’t necessarily hate the taste but it just isn’t something I crave or look forward to, although I wish I did because it is EVERYWHERE right now!
