Pumpkin Pie Shakeology

Posted in Diet, Health, Healthy Eating, Nutrition, Shakeology at 11:50 PM by lanaholt

Put a little Halloween cheer into your Shakeology this season. In addition to all the amazing Shakeology ingredients, you’ll also get the nutritional benefits of pumpkin, which contains lutein, fiber, and alpha and beta carotene. Plus, the healthy polyphenols in cinnamon help regulate blood sugar levels. You’ll get all the taste of pumpkin pie . . . without turning your butt into a pumpkin.

* 1 scoop chocolate Shakeology
* 1 cup rice, soy, almond, or low-fat milk (plain or vanilla)
* 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, unsweetened
* 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
* 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
* Ice (optional)

Combine all ingredients in blender and combine until smooth. You can substitute pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and nutmeg or add more pumpkin for a thicker shake. Makes 1 serving.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
