Charleen’s Pumpkin Smoothie

What a wonderful way to say welcome Fall with a Pumpkin Smoothie! Think of smoothies as an adult-way of enjoying a milkshake, but without the guilt and bad calories!

Did fall start way earlier this year, or what? Anyway, let’s all hop on the fall bandwagon together and make this pumpkin smoothie.

Ingredients


  • 1 (16 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 can light coconut milk, chilled (13-14oz.)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 medium bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  •  2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (optional)**

Directions


  1. Place the can of light coconut milk in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, or until completely chilled.
  2. Add bananas into the blender. Blend until bananas become crumbly. Add coconut milk. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients: pumpkin, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour into two cups and enjoy! Optionally, top with coconut whip and ground cinnamon.

**The cinnamon is optional. I add it because cinnamon is  a SUPER SPICE it lowers your blood sugar! I add that stuff to EVERYTHING!!!
