Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie

If you didn't know this by now, I start every day with a protein smoothie. It's my favorite way to wake up and get energized! Pumpkin season is a treat every year and I couldn't help but come up with a new twist on my usual smoothie.

By Caroline Mac

Serves 1

1 banana, frozen and broken into pieces
1/4  an avocado
1/4 c pumpkin puree
1/3 c brewed coffee (I've been using Starbucks' Thanksgiving blend)

1 scoop RAW Vanilla Spiced Chai protein powder
Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, to taste

Puree all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass and top with a sprinkling of cinnamon.
