Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Oh look.  More pumpkin!  But this time in the form of a pumpkin pie smoothie.

Now I know I’m not reinventing the wheel here since there are pumpkin pie smoothie recipes all over the internet.  And they all call for the same basic ingredients: pumpkin, almond milk, ice, and usually cinnamon and maple syrup.  So that’s what I did.

At first sip I found it to be alright, but a little on the bland side.  I really wanted to up the protein content a bit so I added a tablespoon of almond butter, and that did the trick.

Super easy smoothie for the win.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup almond milk

1/4 cup crushed ice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon smooth almond butter (I’m sure peanut butter would be just as delicious)

Directions:

Pour all ingredients into a blender.  Blend until the smoothie is nice and creamy.

Since I recently discovered pumpkin cider I think I’m going to need to make a boozy pumpkin drink next.

What’s your favorite pumpkin beverage?

    I haven’t gotten into pumpkin much this season, but it’s still early in the year 😀 I love that this is really light and healthy. I see a lot of pumpkin things that are really not healthy, so this is a nice change. I’ll definitely give this a try and let you know how it is 😀
