Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I blogged this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie recipe last year but buried it within another post, and with Fall officially here, it was time I gave it the spotlight.

It is delicious, creamy, and above all, healthy, and if you have a little one living with you, they can enjoy it, too. It has lots of fiber, Vitamin A, and Potassium (and if you’re enjoying this one among adults only, I can’t imagine that tossing a shot of Kahlua in there would hurt anyone).

Cheers, to the holiday kickoff!

pumpkin_pie_smoothie2Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 cup almond milk (or whole milk if you prefer)
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract*
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 ice cubes (or add my coffee cubes, if you need an extra kick)

Method

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses and serve.

*Want to adapt this one for your baby so you can both enjoy a healthy snack? Simply leave out the vanilla extract (since it has alcohol in it), or pour baby’s serving out first before adding the vanilla in for your portion. It’s a nutritious treat for the both of you!
