Fall Favorite Alert: 199-Calorie Pumpkin Pie Paradise
Autumn brings many things: new leaves on the trees, crisper air, everything pumpkin and the year’s most delicious and decadent desserts. You don’t have to either overindulge or miss out with this delicious shake!
The Pumpkin Pie Paradise Star: Pumpkin
“Pumpkin Season” has exploded in the US in recent years, and while it’s acknowledged as delicious, pure pumpkin is rarely celebrated for its wide array of health benefits.
As with other colorful produce, it contains a ton of beta-carotene, which the body converts into Vitamin A. (Speaking of Vitamin A, one cup mashed packs more than 200% of your daily intake!) It also contains a lot of fiber, which keeps you feeling full and helps shed pounds.
The antioxidants may help prevent cancer, but those same antioxidants definitely improve skin elasticity and slow the effects of aging. It also rivals avocado and banana in the Potassium Battle, packing a whopping 564 milligrams in just a cup. It not only offers energy for daily activity and/or workouts, but is great for recovery post-workout.
Lastly, the fruit is a solid source of Vitamin C, boosting immunity and energy.
Mix with pie spice, vanilla almond milk, and blend with ice. Using 310 Shake Vanilla as a base, you can create a delicious dessert that channels one of autumn’s richest desserts and one of nature’s healthiest gifts.
