|Smoothie: Pumpkin Power|
|By Prevention Magazine|
|Canned pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, which protects against the cell damage that occurs during exercise. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat—specifically oleic acid—which is been linked to reduction in inflammation. This smoothie is fabulous after your workout; or do what I do and I drink 4 oz before class to get me going!
|½ c canned pure pumpkin, frozen in ice cube tray (or add ice)
7 oz 2% Greek-style yogurt
½ c water
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed (I use flaxseed oil)
1 Tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
|BLEND all ingredients until smooth.
