Hi Friends, Happy Tuesday! Today I’m resharing an old HH recipe that desperately needed updated photos! I make this Pumpkin Coffee Smoothie all the time so I thought it was finally time I gave those old 2014 photos a facelift!
In the original post I shared two treadmill workouts, I figured I’d keep those in case some of you are looking for some workout/treadmill inspiration!

Pumpkin Coffee Smoothie
It was weird reading this post before I updated it. I talked about how I couldn’t run more than 3 miles without hip pain. It was a really good reminder that the body capable of amazing healing. If you read yesterdays post you know I’m dealing with a back pain flare up.
It’s been physically and emotionally challenging to say the least. It’s so easy to stay positive when things are going good, but that’s why I continually fight for a positive and optimistic attitude.

Pumpkin Coffee Smoothie
- 1/2 cup pumpkin or 4 frozen pumpkin ice cubes
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 6 coffee ice cubes alternatively you could use 1 tsp instant coffee and regular ice cubes
- 1 Date
- sprinkle cinnamon
- sprinkle pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract* Add ice if you didn't use coffee ice cubes or frozen pumpkin ice cubes
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
This smoothie was overflowing so I had to break it up into two glasses for the photo shoot, but for real, I drank both glasses! If it isn’t sweet enough for you throw in a date, some honey, coconut sugar, stevia etc. whatever you’d like to fit your desired level of sweetness.
If you are looking for something to hold you over a bit longer I suggest adding a spoonful of almond butter or healthy hormone balancing seeds. (That will change the nutrition facts though)
Alrighty, I’m off to tackle the day I’ve got a bunch of blog stuff to do and a few follow up meetings with MRT/LEAP clients. I’m taking the week off exercise per doctors orders but Nala still has to get a walk in and I teach tonight so as usual, it’s a busy day! Have a good one!
