Why not. We’ve got pumpkin muffins, lattes, cookies, breads, chia puddings and oatmeal so let’s add pumpkin to your breakfast smoothie. It’s like drinking pumpkin pie. Which is a good thing. Sweetened with dates so there is no added sugar, this beta carotene-rich smoothie is a nice seasonal flavor change from those summer berry smoothies. I found this recipe in a beautifully photographed blog, Once Upon a Pumpkin.
Spiced Pumpkin Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup unsweetened milk (soy or dairy)
2 Medjool dates
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3-4 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until smooth. 1 serving.
