Coach Selena's Fit Tips: It's Time For Pumpkin!

We all understand the importance of good nutrition pre and post-workout, but do you ever feel like it’s totally boring? I’m so sick of bananas!

Thank goodness it’s pumpkin season.

This month, I want to share with you my favorite smoothie that makes me excited for my workout…just so I can indulge in this afterward!

Yield: 4 cups


• 2 cups almond or rice milk + 1 cup water

• 2 tbsp chia seeds

• 1 cup canned pumpkin

• ½ - 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses (if you like flavorful!)

• 1 ripe banana (totally optional if you want to decrease the extra sugar)

• 1 serving of your favorite protein powder (vanilla is best)

• 2 tsp cinnamon

• 1/2 tsp ground ginger

• 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

• 1.5 tsp real maple syrup or 1 dropper full of stevia (to taste) – again, optional, but soooo yummy!

1. Blend until smooth. Add about ½ cup of ice and blend again!

2. Add maple syrup or stevia to taste. Add stevia a little at a time! You can do this AFTER you make the smoothie. Just add a drop or two and then stir your smoothie. You may find it sweet enough without it!
