Protein-Packed Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Start your day the high-powered way with a protein-packed smoothie that tastes like pumpkin pie.

Nothing smells like the holidays more than pumpkin pie spices—cinnamon, cloves, allspice and ginger. That’s why we love GNC Total Lean Shake 25 Pumpkin Spice. With 25 gm of protein and 9 gm of fiber in every serving, this delicious meal-replacement powder can turn an ordinary smoothie into a special occasion powerhouse.

Here, our celebrity chef Neil Zevnik shares his recipe for Pumpkin Pie in a Glass, which gets a festive flare from crystallized ginger and an extra punch of protein and fiber from Total Lean. Blend it for breakfast or for an afternoon energizer.

1 scoop GNC Total Lean Shake 25 Pumpkin Spice
2 Tbsp pumpkin purée
2/3 cup nonfat honey Greek yogurt
3/4 cup organic 2% milk
1 tsp chopped crystallized ginger
dash of cinnamon
dash of ground ginger
light whipped cream (optional)

Combine all ingredients in blender, purée until smooth. Makes about 16 oz.
