Low Carb Pumpkin Smoothie
Eating low carb doesn't mean you can't still enjoy your favorite treats. With a couple of tweaks and substitutions, you can enjoy the foods you crave, without the carbs.
1 Cup Almond Milk*
1/4 Cup Pumpkin Puree**
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (+/- based on your taste)
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 or 2 Splenda Packs (+/- based on your taste)
Add all ingredients to a blender, liquid first and blend well. That's it. Easy as pie... pumpkin pie.
Note: If you're feeling really fancy, you can freeze some almond milk the night before, in an ice tray and use it in the smoothie for more of a frappe texture.
*For this smoothie, I used Califia Farms' coconut/almond milk blend. It's unsweetened and only had a carb or two per the amount I used and it's dairy free.
**For the pumpkin, make sure you use only pure pumpkin, NOT pumpkin pie filling.
