Pumpkin-Packed Smoothies Have Arrived
Fall is officially here, and that means pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING.
From cookies and quick breads to lattes and milkshakes, you won’t be able to go anywhere without seeing the seasonal promotions of sugary treats topped with a swirl of whipped deliciousness. If you’re mindful of your body and health, however, there’s a problem with these seasonal treats: They’re treats. Like all treats, they can be loaded with sugar and unnatural ingredients.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
Not only can pumpkin remain a delicious, nostalgic flavor this time of year, but you no longer need to compromise your diet or feel like you’re cheating on your wellness goals by “indulging” in the seasonal taste.
There's Basic – Then There's Smoothie King
Pumpkin is an underrated food – one we don’t think about until the cooler months – and has an impressive nutrient profile that goes beyond pies and lattes. A single serving of pumpkin can give you 200% of your daily intake of vitamin A, for instance. It also contains vitamin C, potassium, copper, manganese, vitamin B2, vitamin E, and iron. Relatively low in calories, pumpkin is a fantastic source of fiber and helps maintain healthy digestion, and if blended with the right ingredients, you can find yourself a healthy pumpkin smoothie.
That’s something you don’t get with artificial flavors and sweeteners.
Standard pumpkin-spiced treats (think lattes from your favorite coffee shops) can be loaded with syrups and artificial pumpkin syrups that completely miss the mark with essential vitamins, minerals, and nutritional content. At Smoothie King, we opt out of these fake flavors, choosing real, organic pumpkin puree. Additionally, having five different pumpkin protein smoothie blends to choose from, we’re sure you’ll find a pumpkin smoothie that curbs your nostalgia and meets whatever nutritional goals you have.
Here’s what we have to offer:
1. Keto Champ Pumpkin
Made with almond butter and Califia Farms® Almond Milk, there is no need to worry about your carbohydrate intake when incorporating organic pumpkin with our Keto Protein Blend. Whoever thought that pumpkins can’t make you strong has clearly never tried this pumpkin protein smoothie.
2. Pumpkin Coffee High Protein
Perfect for fueling up after your morning workout and starting your day on the right foot, this protein-rich, fitness-focused smoothie is made with organic pumpkin, cold brew coffee, dates, almonds, a spice blend, non-fat milk, a protein blend, and whey protein. Plus, it contains about twice the muscle-building ingredients and half the sugar (all from dates, no less) than that of the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. It tastes just as good – and dare we say better – without unnecessary sugars and calories!
3. Pumpkin Vegan
We’ve made it too easy to stay plant-based this fall. With Califia Farms® Oat Milk and Sunwarrior® organic plant-based protein, we’ve created this vitamin-rich pumpkin smoothie to meet your specific wellness goals. With only seven ingredients, we hope this blend will cater to your self-care and self-love attitude.
4. Pumpkin D-Lite®
If you absolutely need a treat (we get it), rest assured you can indulge without compromising any progress you’ve made with your diet and nutrition. Maintaining the integrity of an organic pumpkin puree, we specifically use vanilla frozen yogurt instead of heavy ice cream to give you that delicious, creamy texture that will satisfy your seasonal cravings.
5. Pumpkin Slim-N-Trim™
Coming in under 300 calories and at least 15 grams of protein, this guilt-free smoothie will satisfy your seasonal cravings. Crush your goals; don’t compromise them by giving in to the sweetened, syrupy alternatives every other place offers.
Pumpkin for Every Purpose
Use the seasonal gourd to its fullest potential. This amazing superfood is meant for more than just pie, sugary drinks, and doorstep decorations – it’s loaded with nutrients that our bodies crave. From dates and almond milk to nut butter and protein blends, we want to enhance and harness the power of pumpkin to create the healthiest, most effective, and yummiest pumpkin smoothie imaginable.
