This Triple Ginger and Pumpkin smoothie was inspired by the triple ginger cookies from Trader Joe’s. If you like ginger, you will love those cookies AND this smoothie. You will notice that this recipe calls for frozen light coconut milk. I use coconut milk instead of ice to add an element of creaminess. Incorporating frozen items (i.e.frozen banana) to smoothies helps increase the smoothie’s thickness. The thicker the drink, the longer I get to enjoy it, plus it helps with satiety. Enjoy this festive fall smoothie start to your day!
2–3 ice cubes of light coconut milk (or 2–3 oz. light coconut milk)
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
2 T. ground flaxseed
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 t. ground ginger
1 t. chopped fresh ginger
2 small pieces candied ginger
Blend all ingredients.
