Pumpkin Pie Smoothie with Parsley Protein Powder

By Guest Blogger and Parsley Team Member, Klara Mudge.

At Parsley right now the entire team is shamelessly and unapologetically eating any and all varieties of this season’s vitamin-DENSE veg in just about any shape, form, meal. Sure, moderation is key, but we don’t feel too bad about our recent “heightened” pumpkin intake, because, well: carotenoids (vitamin A) ; antioxidants; Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamin B5, C and E; and fiber . To name only a few reasons.

You’ve heard us talk about Plant Based Paleo before. We aim to include good quality sources of protein with every meal, which is not exactly always easily achievable. Especially for the busy, health-conscious human with limited day or night time for endless meal prep.

Enter the unbeatable Parsley Health Protein powder – vegan (rice and pea protein), multi-vitamin enriched, 26 g of protein, and so very delicious!

Having our Parsley Powder as the base of our morning shake has been a complete game-changer, not only for us but definitely also for our members and patients. Starting your day with a solid, nutrient dense protein meal sets you up for major success all day and reduces your chances of concentration loss, food cravings, coffee overload and the inevitable energy crash.

We like to add some good fats and extra-antioxidants in the form of nuts, seeds, berries or any other exciting seasonal goods to our shake.

Today we bring you the – you guessed it! – pumpkin pie smoothie version of the Parsley Breakfast Shake. Some of us on the team, may or may not have also had this for lunch, afternoon snack and a weekend dessert several times this season. Whatever works for you 😉
