Pumpkin Smoothie

First order of business….Happy Halloween!!!

Second order….I know I haven’t posted anything in awhile but grad school has got me totally busy! Not only do I have little to no time to blog, I barely have time to cook! I know! Awful right?

However, I’ve been wanting to make this pumpkin smoothie all week as an ode to Halloween. I (strangely) have some extra time before work so I figured I would share. It’s one of my favorites and can definitely be enjoyed throughout the year, no matter what season!

Pumpkin Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (agave or honey work too)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp flax meal (optional)

Throw it all in the blender and blend! If it’s too thick add a little more liquid: milk or water. Enjoy!
