Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Fall is upon us, which means it is pumpkin season.  I have already had several PSL's from Starbucks, but I wanted to branch out with my pumpkin drinks.  We love to drink smoothies at my house, so I got the idea to make a Pumpkin Pie smoothie.

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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!

  1. Looks like a complete dessert. I must try that. Not as sweet as Starbucks I'm guessing.
