Ingredients

● ½ Frozen Banana

● ½ cup Pumpkin Puree

● ¾ cup non-fat Greek Yogurt

● ¼ cup fat-free Milk

● ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Tips

● Agave is a fructose rich sweetener and the Agave 5 product is also mixed with stevia and monk fruit which as not digestible by our bodies. This means that insulin levels will spike much less than if we were to consume as much as regular sugar, honey, or maple syrup. And, it only has 5 calories per tsp!

Notes: There is a lot of Vitamin A in this recipe (253% of our DV!) which is ok as long as we’re not eating this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Vitamin A is converted into retinol by the liver and supports eye, skin, and immune health! BUT, we just like anything, we want to consume it in moderation. This level of Vitamin A is still totally fine and won’t adversely affect our health unless we consistently consume too much of it. So enjoy the health benefits of pumpkin… in moderation!
