Pumpkin Spice Protein Green Smoothie

This is the perfect green smoothie for Fall! It combines frozen pumpkin puree with sunbutter, spinach, cinnamon and unsweetened almond milk.

To make a thick creamy smoothie like this, you usually need to add a lot of frozen fruit or chia seeds. But Kelli at hungryhobby was able to create this delicious creamy texture using pumpkin puree!

The pumpkin gives added health benefits including cancer prevention, digestive health and a boost to your immune system. One cup of pumpkin puree provides you with 7.1 grams of dietary fiber and is an excellent source of iron!
