Fall Anyone? Pumpkin Smoothie

2 Oct

Mmmm….the delicious taste of fall in a glass!

I saw some beautiful pumpkins at the grocery store this week and it prompted me to try this pumpkin smoothie recipe below. I typically never add sugar to my smoothies, but this one is pretty bland without it.

To freeze the pumpkin puree, simply pour it from your blender (or a can!) into an ice cube tray or silicone brownie mold pan. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag for storage and use in recipes like this one!

Pumpkin Smoothie

Simply blend the following ingredients in blender on high for approximately one minute:

–1 cup coconut milk

–1 large dollop greek yogurt

–1/2 cup frozen pumpkin puree

–1 tsp. cane sugar

–sprinkle of cinnamon

–sprinkle of nutmeg

–top with whipped cream and cinnamon and add a cinnamon stick

Note: vanilla ice cream would be a delicious alternative to the yogurt if you’re not concerned about the calories

    These bright and beautiful members of the squash family are low in calories, high in fiber,
    and bursting with rich, nutty flavor that is
    delicious on its own and a perfect compliment to both
    sweet and savory holiday dishes. Once you have a full pantry, cooking will be much more enjoyable.
    Pondering what else pumpkin seeds can provide for diet.
