With pumpkin season in full swing, my foodie feeds are overflowing with sweet pumpkin recipes. And I can’t get enough. I bookmark one recipe after another, promising myself to try every one. But truth be told, I’ve been too busy developing pumpkin recipes of my own. I’ve got pumpkin ricotta pancakes with cranberry maple syrup in the works. And then there’s a mouthwatering pumpkin pot pie that’s coming up.
All my pumpkin playing left me with some extra canned pumpkin that I refused to throw away, so I decided to whip it up into a delicious pumpkin pie smoothie. It came out even better than expected – with the taste of a milkshake, but the calories of a healthy smoothie. For all the pumpkin lovers out there – it doesn’t get better, quicker, or easier than this!
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
1 medium frozen banana
6 oz vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 c milk
1/2 c pumpkin purée
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp maple syrup
pecans, for garnish
Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Garnish with pecans.

What a fabulous fall drink. I’m going to try it w/some roasted
pumpkins and almond milk. Thx for the sharing such and original & seasonal idea :)
It really doesn’t get any easier! I always have extra pumpkin and I love greek yogurt. I might even try this with coconut yogurt since I have some in the house right now. I can’t wait to try this recipe. I love our matching straws from our Monday posts this week :) http://kitchen-tested.com/2013/10/21/mike-ike-and-pear-infused-vodka/
