Pumpkin Spice "Latte" Smoothie

I know it's not technically Pumpkin Spice season but it's been freezing here in Nor Cal this week (and by freezing of course I mean temps in the 50's), also I saw a recipe for a Pumpkin Spice smoothie in my new cookbook (the 21 day sugar detox cookbook) so I modified it to make it a breakfast smoothie and it came out delicious, I drank one almost every morning this week!

  • a few cubes of ice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (in the can)
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1-2 scoops of vanilla whey protein
  • half a banana
  • 1 instant coffee packet (I use VIA from Starbucks)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Blend all of the above ingredients in your high speed blender. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
