Ingredients

    1 cup Almond milk, vanilla or plain
    1/2 banana
    1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    *2 tablespoons ground flax seed meal

Tips

*Ground flax seed meal is a fantastic source of fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids. You can buy them in most grocery stores and definitely at specialty grocery stores. If you can't find them ground, you can buy them whole and grind them yourself in a coffee grinder. However, only grind what you will immediately use because freshly ground flax seeds go bad quickly.

**I used an immersion blender. I find that it is easier on the clean up and is perfect for this single meal deals. They're relatively cheap- about $20- yet they are very durable!


Directions

Place all ingredients into a blender**. Blend and enjoy!
