‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin spice. Everywhere you go, the popular scent and flavor is manifesting in all kinds of ways to usher in the autumn season: candles, lattes, and desserts. Mannatech, a global developer of nutritional technology, has created a healthy pumpkin spice drink option that delivers fall flavors with a high-nutritional quotient. Anyone can whip up this smoothie anytime there is a need to snuggle up in some blankets by a fire, read a good book, carve a pumpkin, and watch the leaves change into those beautiful fall colors. 

Notes

We recommend adding 8 scoops of OsoLean® and 4 scoops of NutriVerus™ to add an extra Mannatech nutritional punch. This addition makes the smoothie approved for the Refresh and Rejuvenate program, too.

Ingredients

  • frozen bananas
  • 3/4  Cups  organic pumpkin puree
  • 2  Teaspoons  pumpkin spice
  • 2  Teaspoons  vanilla
  • 2 1/2  Cups  almond milk

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Add as much almond milk as you need to reach a smooth and creamy consistency. Pour into four glasses and enjoy!

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
