This healthy pumpkin smoothie is like chilled pumpkin pie in a glass, but without the fat and calories. This thick and creamy smoothie makes a delicious and filling liquid breakfast or an energy-boosting 'snack.' Be sure to use a very ripe banana, preferably frozen, and sweeten your smoothie according to your preference.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 very ripe medium-sized banana
  • 3/4 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt (I used Oikos 0% fat Greek vanilla yogurt)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup crushed ice

Preparation:

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth, making sure the ice is completely crushed.

Yummy recipe-made some tweaks, Member KellyAAM

Overall, a very yummy recipe! I decreased the honey to 1/2 tablespoon, increased the vanilla to 1/2 tsp. and added a teaspoon of flaxseed and 1/2 scoop of protein powder. I've made this recipe a couple of times now and will continue to do so.
