Pumpkin pie gets a bad rap because each slice packs tons of heavy cream and sugar. But you can still get that sweet, whipped taste without a serious sugar rush. We loaded up our classic vanilla smoothie recipe with lots of pumpkin and spices, since pumpkin is high in fiber, antioxidants and immunity-boosting nutrients like iron and vitamins A and E. One glass of this cool and creamy shake boasts a whopping 27 grams of protein. Whip out the blender and drink up for good health and muscle recovery! (Can’t get enough of pumpkin this fall?
