Well, that is certainly a mouthful! And Delicious!! Seriously…apple, peanut butter, pumpkin… what a combo!

It all started when I was looking at leftover apple cider in the fridge while deciding on a smoothie flavor of the day. Well, let me tell you, the “what’s in the fridge today” method was super successful (this time- haha)!


Pumpkin Peanutty Cider Smoothie

8 oz apple cider (for a less sweet version, add 4 oz cider + 4 oz water)

1/4 cup pumpkin

1/4 cup peanut butter (or 1/2 cup if you want it more peanutty!)

1/2 – 1 Tbsp Dandy blend (adds a slight coffee flavor that brings out the other flavors)

1/2-1 tsp cinnamon

optional: I added all of these for my Rocking blend! but since they do not add much in flavor, but lots in a powerful health punch, it is up to you! the banana adds a little sweetness, but also creamy smoothness.

1 Tbsp Maca

2 Tbsp pea protein (for variety, already has some protein with the nut butter)

4 (+/-) drops stevia

1/2 frozen banana

2 Tbsp flax oil

Give all a whir in the vitamix. I like to add all but the banana, then toss that in at the very end. just works nice that way.
