Prep Notes


Yes, pumpkins do contain natural sugars, but they’re also full of Vitamins A and C as well as an excellent source of potassium. This smoothie can be a favorite post-workout recovery drink. It’s the perfect way to sneak more greens into your diet while the cashews provide a source of healthy fats, also aiding the absorption of all the nutrients in the greens in addition to providing a bit of protein.
