Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin Smoothie

It's amazing how much pumpkin three small sugar pumpkins actually put out! So that just encourages me to come up with new uses for pumpkin. This morning I was thinking about pumpkin and I wondered how a pumpkin smoothie would taste, so I whipped one up. If you like pumpkin then this little gem makes a great fall time breakfast or snack!

What You'll Need:
1 ripe banana
1 cup of cooked pumpkin
1 cup of milk (Note: I used EdenBlend's Rice Soy blend, but you can whatever type of milk you like.)
1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter
1 cup of ice

Dump all the ingredients into the jar of your blender and blend on high until smooth. Serve immediately.

Notes: If you wanted to add some cinnamon they that would be a great addition, but I'd leave out the peanut butter. Also I think the banana and pumpkin "sweetens" the smoothie without having to add any other sweeteners, but if you think it needs something more then I would go with either a tablespoon of honey or a tablespoon of maple syrup. I'ts nice to stick with natural sweetners and not processed ones.

And SO good for you too!

I whip up a pumpkin smoothie for breakfast sometimes -- my kids adore it. The recipe I started with also had banana, but I leave it out, and I cheat with canned pumpkin :-) Whiz all these ingredients in a blender . . .

1/2 c pumpkin puree
3 or 4 ice cubes
1 container vanilla yogurt (6-8 oz)
1 yogurt-cup of vanilla soymilk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp allspice

Cheers!
