mix it up {pumpkin smoothie}

April 28, 2013


After making a batch of Pioneer Woman’s yummy Pumpkin Muffins with Little Miss last weekend, I decided to use up the remaining pumpkin and evaporated milk in a tasty, sort-of-healthy, pumpkin smoothie.  Why pumpkin?  It’s almost May.  Pumpkin is fall.  Well, when we get pumpkins in the fall, I eventually end up with loads of pumpkin puree in my freezer.  And when it was snowing in mid-April, pumpkin muffins really warmed up the place.


That’s right.  Snowing in mid-April.  Ugh.  Thank goodness we had brighter days this weekend!

Anyhow, for your own sort-of-healthy Pumpkin Smoothie, collect–

2 cups frozen pumpkin puree
1 cup evaporated milk (or whatever milk you have)
1 cup vanilla greek yogurt (or whatever vanilla or plain yogurt you have)
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
dash of pumpkin pie spice

Blend.  Makes about 4 cups.

This smoothie is pretty hearty and a good dose of protein, vitamins, fiber…good things.  Enjoy
