How to make a Ginger Pumpkin Protein Smoothie


We were so thrilled this past week when one of our friends, Cristina Proano-Carrion, posted this cool fall recipe for a ginger pumpkin protein smoothie on our HL&S LinkedIn group .

Cristina is an aromatherapy expert, who notes that the benefits of ginger essential oil include anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, and digestive aid. Pumpkin is a fantastic source of beta-carotene.

Christina says to mix the following together in a blender:

  • ¼ small pumpkin baked
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 2 drops ginger essential oil
  • cinnamon powder
  • brown sugar to taste

How to bake the pumpkin

  1. Preheat the oven on 350 F.
  2. Seed and cut 1 small pumpkin in 4.
  3. Place pumpkin, face up, in a shallow baking dish.  Sprinkle with a little cinnamon
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until pumpkin is very tender.
  5. You can put the pumpkin pieces in a container and store it in the refrigerator; you will only need 1 quarter pumpkin for each smoothie.

Join our group to contribute more to discussions like this. We’d love to know how it worked out. Enjoy!!
