Celebrate Fall with all the pumpkin goodness the season has to offer with this homemade Pumpkin Pie Smoothie. It’s loaded with lots of healthy ingredients, but so delicious the whole family will love it!
Since my birthday is in October, Fall has always been my most favorite season. I love the sunny days with the cool breezes and the beautiful colors of the trees in New England. Here in NH we’ve had unseasonably warm weather these last few weeks, and while I’m sad to see summer go, I’m sort of craving one of those crisp Fall days at the same time.
Now, there’s nothing more quintessentially Fall than Pumpkin Pie, am I right? I’m so excited to share this delicious recipe with you today. This smoothie has the most amazing blend of flavors. And it’s got pumpkin puree, bananas and yogurt in it, so it is a bit healthier than the Pumpkin Spice Latte all the coffee shops are serving these days.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (Greek or regular)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup skim or almond milk
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 Tablespoon honey
2/3 cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)
Whipped cream (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Process the mixture until smooth. For an icy smoothie, add 1 cup of ice to the blender. Top with whipped cream if desired.
This is a great treat for the kiddos, too. This serving size is more appropriate for adults and teens, but I find that splitting between my two children is the perfect amount. Mine love the whipped cream topping especially!
