The Recipe

This one is a simple one, guys. You will need:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup organic canned pumpkin
  • 2 tbs protein powder (your choice!)
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger (more or less to your preference)
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 handful of ice

The Benefits

So we have both pumpkin AND ginger as our all-star ingredients. Let’s start with the leader…


  • Pumpkins are loaded with beta-carotene (giving it the orange color!) that can help protect against free-radical damage caused by UV rays.
  • Alpha hydroxyl acids – have you heard of them? This natural fruit acid is known to help clear old skin cells to promote a radiant complexion.
  • Pumpkin is packed with vitamin A, responsible for increasing cell renewal. This leads to softer, younger skin.
  • Pumpkin promotes dental heath.


  • Over 40 antioxidant compounds found in ginger can help protect against aging. They can actually help improve the appearance of skin by removing toxins and promoting circulation.
  • Ginger has been known to help settle a stomach. If you are feeling nauseas, grab a ginger chew!
  • Ginger can help improve the absorption of essential nutrients.
  • Ginger is a powerful antiseptic that can help keep skin clear of acne.

Blend this smoothie up and see just how tasty fall can be. Enjoy!
