Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie

I’ve been seeing pumpkin flavored foods everywhere this week!  It kind of makes me excited for fall…kind of.  Don’t get me wrong I love Halloween and the change of the leaves and the crisp autumn days.  But it also means winter will be here soon and winter and I are not friends :).

Anyway onto my own pumpkin inspired recipe.


Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie

1 C. Ice

½ Pumpkin Puree (I used frozen)

1 Frozen Banana

1 6 oz container Yoplait Light Very Vanilla

½ C. Milk (any kind)

1 Tbsp. Honey

½ tsp. Vanilla

½ tsp. Cinnamon

¼ tsp. Nutmeg

1/8 tsp. Cloves

Put the ice in the bottom of the blender and then layer all other ingredients on top.  Blend until smooth.  Smoothie should be nice and thick.

I like as many ingredients as possible to be frozen when I make smoothies.  It makes them more thick and delicious.  I always keep a bunch of frozen bananas in the freezer, peels on.  then I can just pop one in the blender when needed.  The frozen pumpkin, that was luck.  I froze pumpkin last year in baggies when I decided to cook our jack-o-lanterns 🙂


Apparently I like orange.  I noticed my manicure is orange as well as my smoothie and straw.


An afternoon in the kitchen just isn’t complete without one disaster.  Yeah, I dropped a big yogurt container on the floor while putting away my groceries…and then I stepped in it…go me.


I have a super fun (well, fun to me) post coming up tomorrow.  So if there are any zombie fans out there be sure to stay tuned!

And go try this smoothie, it’s super tasty 🙂
