I love pumpkin. In pie, as cookies, roasted, and of course pumpkin spice. There’s something about those spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove combined with pumpkin that just give me a warm happy feeling. A pumpkin spice latte used to be my fall drink of choice years ago. I don’t get them any more, though I still love the pumpkin spice actual flavour combination. Excitingly I came across this no sugar pumpkin spice smoothie recipe.
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
This smoothie is a favorite when you see advertisements for pumpkin-flavored everything! As we head into fall, the fall flavors and colors call to us, but that doesn’t mean that you need to spend big bucks for a fancy drink with fake pumpkin ‘flavor’, you can inexpensively and easily make something even better at home using wholesome ingredients! Use banana to sweeten or if you want something more milkshake like to serve as a dessert or treat, add in the optional sweetener.
- 2 bananas frozen
- 1/2 cup pumpkin cooked
- 2 cups yogurt or milk dairy free: 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup filtered water
- 1/4 teaspoon each: Nutmeg cinnamon, ground ginger
- Optional: 1/4 cup honey for GAPS or maple syrup.
Blend until smooth. Top with a sprinkle of nutmeg and enjoy!
That sounds super yummy!
