Vanilla Pumpkin Pie: The Best Smoothie Yet?

Filed under: General Health, Nutrition, Recipes

I have really been coming up with some absolutely awesome smoothie recipes lately. I have my World’s Greatest Smoothie pretty much daily, and a client of mine gave me an fantastic recommendation for a similar option. I actually can’t believe I didn’t think of it first.

For a long time I had a pumpkin/cottage cheese/protein powder combination that was to die for. I haven’t had it in quite a long time actually due to the fact that I am trying to greatly reduce my dairy intake to pretty much just Greek yogurt, pastured butter and some occasional cheese consumption. I used to rock 2 cups of cottage cheese per day, pretty much every single day. Now that this has changed, I have been adapting many of my dairy-based recipes to follow suit.

This recipe tastes like vanilla pumpkin pie, it is absolutely phenomenal.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie

  • ~6oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp milled flax
  • cinnamon to taste
  • nutmeg to taste
  • ice cubes
  • Blend & Enjoy!

On a side note, Dr. John Berardi and his Precision Nutrition team are again opening up spots for their Lean Eating Program. This program is unbelievable and has a proven track record of success. In fact two Mondays ago, Dr John Berardi and the folks at Precision Nutrition wrapped up the previous $20,000 Lean Eating Program.

According to Dr Berardi, over 10,000 pounds were lost during the contest.  And, as of today, photos of the finalists have been posted online.

Whether you’re looking to kick off a body transformation of your own.  Or whether you’re in the process of accomplishing an awesome transformation, the photos are sure to provide you with some serious motivation.

So click here to check out the male finalists:

And click here to check out the female finalists:

Plus, if you have a second, feel free to vote for your favorites.  It’s your vote that’ll help determine who walks away with $20,000 of Dr Berardi’s money.

Keep your eyes peeled for when they announce the new Lean Eating Program opening its doors for applicants.

  1. Rob Difilipo Says:


    It’s interesting to see your shift away from dairy/attempt to scale back consumption to the most modest of levels. I say this because it seems like a lot of sharp minds are divided on this topic.

    For example, Alan Aragon is an ardent apologist for dairy (unless you have someone who has a full-blown allergy), whereas folks like Sally Fallon and Jonny Bowden are not so keen on it and make a special point about the source that any dairy does come from (a distinction that I believe Mr. Aragon does not make when defending dairy, although don’t know his “official” stance on most commercial dairy versus pastured dairy).

    Many people who defend dairy passionately say there is not enough clear-cut evidence that anyone outside of those with a true allergy should avoid it. Now while anecdotal evidence can be of dubious quality at times, it is hard to ignore the many instances where people have either cut out dairy or greatly scaled back on its consumption to a minimal amount (or possibly a moderate amount if they have regular access to pastured and organic dairy products).

    Do you think that dairy is one of those areas where the available research doesn’t reveal the entire story and that those who say there are no issues with it for anyone other than those with true allergies are a bit too quick to give it such a green light?

    Part of my interest in this area also stems from a “conversation” I recently had at my gym. A fellow gym goer asked me what I tend to use around training if I use a protein powder, and I mentioned that I purchase DFH’s Whey Cool. Suddenly his face contorted and he went off saying how I was grossly overpaying for a product that was no better than any other whey product out there but cost several times as much as some others.

    To add insult to injury, he labeled me as a “misguided bro” who must not pay attention to science and the research currently available. So to say that the dairy issue, whether it is the choice to consume it or not, commercial versus pastured (even relating to whey products as noted above), or any of the other debates (pasteurized versus raw, hormones- a problem or not, etc, etc), is a vexing one for me might be a gross understatement.

    My stance has been that keeping dairy in my diet but to a minimum is best, as is trying to select pastured products as often as possible even if it means paying extra (as with Whey Cool). But apparently I am just a bro with my heads stuck in the clouds and a big hole in my pocket.
