Healthy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie


And more importantly... HAPPY PUMPKIN SEASON! SO many of my favourite September & October recipes include pumpkin. I love it. My kids love it. And it just screams FALL!

Also, get a load of this throwback photo of 6 month old Grayson in a pumpkin patch! He was so chunky, he couldn't hold himself up for very long and would always topple over - so what you DON'T see in this photo is me running back and forth to sit him upright in between photos!

AHH he's so cute.

OKAY. Back to our Pumpkin Recipes.

I have a delicious HEALTHY Pumpkin Pie Smoothie recipe to share with you today:

This smoothie will serve 2 and your kids will LOVE it!

* 1 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
* 1 Frozen Banana
* 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree, Frozen (NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling)
* 3/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
* 1/3 Cup Full Fat Plain Greek Yogurt (simply OMIT if you are Dairy Free)
* 2 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
* 2 Tbsp Old Fashioned Oats
* 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
* 1/8 tsp Salt

Blend until smooth!

TIP: Pumpkin puree can be frozen by the tablespoon on a cookie sheet and then placed into a bag to pop into smoothies! It gives the smoothie a great consistency!
