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
