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.
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)
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?
