This is the perfect drink for breakfast or after a workout. It is so easy to make and you probably already have most of the ingredients on hand!
- 1 Frozen banana
- 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (or honey)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Whipped cream (for garnish)
- Pumpkin pie or caramel sauce (for garnish)
Combine all ingredients in the blender and mix until smooth. If you do not have time to freeze the banana, just add a few ice cubes to give it the frozen consistency.
Serve in a mug and garnish with whipped cream, pumpkin pie sauce, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I was just going to use caramel sauce, but when I spotted the Torani Pumpkin Pie Sauce on a display at the grocery store, I had to pick it up to use instead!
Even though this is not a substitute for the traditional pumpkin pie, it is a sweet treat and a way to sneak some healthy fruits and veggies into your (or your child's) diet!
