Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Last night my husband was saying that he felt the holidays went by so fast and he kind of misses them. I agree with him on some parts because I don’t care for the early mornings of getting the kids up for school again. I don’t miss all of the running around and craziness that also seems to go along with the holidays. As a special treat, I made him this Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for breakfast this morning. Pumpkin pie is something we always have during the holidays, our son insists on it! But this smoothie is really good and made with great ingredients so you can enjoy it all year long. If you, like a lot of us out there, are trying to make better food choices or are trying to shed some extra pounds, this is a smoothie to add to your list!
- 1¼ cup of pure pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup of pecans
- 1 large frozen banana
- 1 cup of almond, soy or coconut milk
- 1 tbsp of agave nectar
- 1 cup of ice
- ½ tsp of vanilla
- 1½ teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
- Place pecans in the blender and run until they are ground up.
- Add the remaining ingredients into the blender and blend until mixture is smooth.
- You can optionally top with coconut flake, pecans and pumpkin spice.
My husband LOVED this Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie! What I love about it is that I usually have all of the ingredients in my pantry anyway. We keep pumpkin puree stocked year round because I use it to make one of our dogs food! If you are looking for some more great smoothie ideas, be sure to look through our recipes HERE!
