I just can’t get enough pumpkin during the fall. This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie tastes just like a pumpkin pie! What is even better is that this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie contains only 1.63 grams of fat and nearly 10 grams of protein! Now that is a drink you can feel good about. Maybe I will serve Pumpkin Pie Smoothies this Thanksgiving instead of pie.
1/2 Banana, frozen
1/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1/3 Cup Plain Yogurt
1/2 Cup Milk
1/8 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
5 Ice Cubes
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Yield: 1 Serving (about 2 Cups)
I’m usually terrible at making smoothies, but I thought I would give it another try. I found this recipe from the Martha Stewart website and decided to give it a try with only a slight modification. The original recipe called for raspberries, but I used strawberries instead. It turned out to be pretty good and was a great use for the coconut water I had in my freezer from the coconuts I opened a while back.
1 Cup Ice
1/2 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt
1/2 Cup Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 Tablespoon Honey
¾-1 Cup Coconut Water (or any juice)
Place the ice and frozen strawberries in the blender.
Add the remaining ingredients on top. For the coconut water/juice, just start with ¾ cup and add more if you need to.
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
