A scrumptious shake rich in protein, vitamins and taste. Great for breakfast or as an after-school or work snack.
1/2 cup cooked pumpkin (canned will work)*
3/4 cup soymilk
3/4 cup apple cider
2 scoops soy protein powder**
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Mix all ingredients in a blender and enjoy! For a slightly sweeter treat, you can replace the soymilk with apple cider. Adjust spices to your taste and liking – ginger can also be added, or you could try using pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice.
*To cook a pumpkin, you can boil it whole (if it’s small enough and you have a pot big enough) until soft, or cut it in half, seed it and bake it until it’s very soft. Cool it enough to handle, peel and mash. It’s actually a lot easier than one would think.
**Natural Factors has a great mix called Learning Factors.
