Happy October! The weather is finally beginning to cool off and that can only mean one thing – pumpkin spiced everything. But don’t get too close to your nearest Starbucks just yet! Unfortunately, many delicious pumpkin flavored drinks and baked goods contain almost NO actual pumpkin. So unfortunately you’re getting a ton of high-fructose corn syrup without any of the added health benefits.
Pumpkin offers so many delicious health benefits, you’re completely missing out if you’re ingesting fake pumpkin. Real, organic pumpkin is full of beta-carotene, great for reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, and can help with asthma symptoms. It also contains vitamin C (immune boosting), fiber (great for digestion), and potassium (great for blood pressure).
But we do have some good news for you – we have created a delicious smoothie to satisfy all your pumpkin spiced cravings! Check out the Pumpkin Peach Smoothie below. All you need is the MCT Lean Perfect Pair and four other ingredients.
