Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I’m not that girl who loses her mind when fall comes around and everything needs to be pumpkin spice this…or that.  When I saw that Oreo’s had jumped on the bandwagon, I seriously hoped that finally pumpkin spice had jumped the shark.  This smoothie is better because it has ACTUAL PUMPKIN in it!  Way better than just some spices.

1/2 banana
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground ginger
1 tsp pure maple syrup
1.25 cups cashew milk
1/2 cup pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie blend)
5 ice cubes
Blend on high until smooth.
