Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
People often ask me what my favorite “weight loss” smoothie is. I don’t know if I could pick just one as my moods tend to shift from time to time – sometimes I’ll want a green smoothie and sometimes I’ll desire something a little more desserty like a Chocolate Milkshake. I love the rich chocolaty flavor without the guilt!! Lately I’ve been feeling inspired by fall flavors so I decided to add a little seasonal twist to this recipe.
- 2 bananas – (you could also substitute 1 large avocado if you can’t do bananas)
- 1.5 cups almond milk
- 2 heaping Tbs Chocolate Powder
- 3-4 Dashes of Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 2 squirts Vanilla Stevia
Simply add all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Voilà! The perfect breakfast or snack that takes just a few mins to make and helps you stay on track with your weight loss!
I make all my smoothies using a VitaMix which is a super awesome, state of the art, amazing, must have high speed blender. They are the ONLY blender that will get you the creamy consistency that you desire. I love, love, LOVE my VitaMix and highly recommend investing in one if you are ready to make serious changes to your diet. I have had mine for almost 5 years and use it daily! If you’re not ready to drop that kind of cash, Hamilton Beach makes some great budget friendly blenders that you can get at your local Walmart or Target.
I’ve been loving this smoothie for breakfast, as a snack, and when I’m on the go. I hope you like it as much as I do!! If you’ve been making any fun smoothie combinations I’d love to hear about them! I am always looking for interesting ways to add a little “twist” to my favorite recipes!
