Have you seen all the pumpkin recipes floating around lately?
I mean, one WHIFF of autumn and I am basically foaming at the mouth for pumpkin! I have been pinning pumpkin recipes on Pinterest left and right, but one idea kept sparking my
interest taste buds:
Pumpkin Pie Smoothies!
I found a handful recipes that gave me a good starting point.
I knew I wanted the smoothie to first: Be delicious. Second: Hold me over until lunch. And third: Taste like pumpkin pie.
Thick, creamy, and OH SO DELICIOUS! Yep. It tastes just like Pumpkin Pie!
Bananas are the perfect light-in-flavor base for this smoothie. Pumpkin Puree is a no brainer, and quite a bit healthier than pumpkin pie filling. The protein powder and rolled oats give this smoothie the staying power a breakfast needs. The pumpkin pie spice…well, that’s what makes it taste like a pie without the calories. Almond milk is delicious, but you can also use regular milk or soy.
And while you’re at it, top that baby off with a sprinkle of…
Just do it.
The only thing that could make this smoothie better would be sprinkling it with crushed GF graham crackers and eating it with a spoon. Wait. That’s not a bad idea! But maybe not the healthiest idea….but it would be delicious.
Try it. I know you’ll love it!
What about you? Pumpkin, Pecan, or Apple Pie?
