Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

 

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.

 

 

Ingredients:
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)

 

 

Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

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.

 

Ingredients:
1 Cup Ice
1/2 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt
1 Banana
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!
