Pumpkin Smoothie

November 14, 2017

I often put a little pumpkin in my smoothie, but the thing is, pumpkin is a pretty neutral taste.  It's easily overpowered by other flavors; which is fine, when I am just putting pumpkin in a smoothie for extra nutrition.  For this smoothie I wanted something with more of a pumpkin flavor.  Almost like pumpkin pie in a glass.  At first I used frozen bananas as the fruit, but the banana completely overpowered the pumpkin, so I turned to mango for a more balanced flavor.  

 

Pumpkin Smoothie

  • 1 cup raw milk, kefir or yogurt

  • 2/3 cup organic, pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup organic frozen mangoes, or a tropical fruit mix 

  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice, or cinnamon

  • 3 Tbsp. organic, pure maple syrup, or to taste

  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, or to taste

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

 

1.  Place ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.  

 

 

NOTES

 

Kefir and yogurt will give smoothie a more tart taste.  

 

You could use sweet potato, or another winter squash in place of the pumpkin. 

 

You can substitute date paste to taste, in place of the maple syrup.
