Tips and variations
- Storing frozen bananas - Frozen bananas in smoothies are supreme because they thicken the texture. Keep peeled and sliced bananas in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- No frozen bananas? Add ice - Throw a handful of ice into the blender if you didn’t have time to freeze the fruit. This should help it thicken up and make it ice-cold.
- Vegan pumpkin shake - The recipe is naturally vegan but you can give it a nutritional boost by adding chia seeds or ground flaxseed. Also, use any plant milk you love. Soy, oat, and cashew milk are all great options.
- Finish it with toppings - If you want to enjoy this pumpkin protein shake recipe for dessert, finish each serving with whipped cream, coconut whip, a sprinkle of cinnamon, salted caramel pumpkin seeds, walnuts, pecans, grain free granola, maple syrup, or caramel sauce on top.
