In honor of my last can of pumpkin puree, I just made pumpkin smoothies. It was honestly spur of the moment (I was in the kitchen looking for a snack) and the pumpkin jumped out at me. Boy – am I glad it did. These were so delicious. The perfect pumpkin treat to end the pumpkin season.
1 can pumpkin puree
1 cup of ice
1 cup of skim milk
vanilla (to taste – I used about a tbsp)
1/4 cup of oats
1 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt
2 tbsp of half and half
a dash of sugar
Blend ingredients and serve chilled.
Now on to Winter flavors: peppermint, eggnog, cinnamon, ginger, almond – YUM! Can’t wait to find some recipes to experiment with…
