I'm always looking for new smoothies. They are one of my favorite go-to's when I want to enjoy something delicious, healthy, and easy to take with me on the go. I have several favorites. However, recently I was looking for something more seasonal to add a bit of variety, and I found just the thing. It's a great breakfast but also makes a quite filling snack, too. And now I will share it with you.

Protein-rich Pumpkin & Pear Smoothie: 

1-2 fresh, large pears, cored and chopped

3/4 cup organic canned pumpkin puree

1 cup plant-based milk (cuz you know I don't do dairy milk--you can opt for an unsweetened vanilla almond or soy milk.)

2 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp plant-based protein powder, such as pea or hemp

3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

About 1 cup of ice

Blend! Again, I can't recommend the Vitamix enough. However, there's many high-powered brands that would also work. This should make two servings. Enjoy!
