Sarah's Pumpkin Pie Smoothie ~ Two Ways

My friend, Sarah, shared her Pumpkin Pie Smoothie recipe with me... and I enjoyed it so much, I just had to share it on the blog.  Pumpkins are everywhere this time of year & I'm all over any recipes I can get my hands on.  Sarah's smoothie is easy, simple & yummy ~ all the things I want in a quick breakfast or snack.  Make mine a Pumpkin Pie, please! (smoothie, that is :)  

Sarah's Pumpkin Pie Smoothie ~ Two Ways 
makes one serving

  • 1/4 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or fat-free milk
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • Sarah's Optional Add-In's ~ 1/4 cup raw oatmeal and/or 1 Tbsp chia seeds and/or 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds


Throw all ingredients into blender & whirl away until smooth & frosty.  Enjoy!

The Pumpkin Pie Smoothie to the left is the one with the optional oatmeal & ground flax seeds, the one to the right is the the basic recipe.

The basic Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is lightly sweet & has the fresh taste of gently spiced pumpkin pie.  I've also made the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie with some of the optional ingredients ~ I used the raw oatmeal & ground flax seeds.  Since I like my pumpkin pie on the spicy side, I also included an additional 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon & an Equal packet for a bit more sweetness.  The oatmeal gives the smoothie an extra hit of thickness for a rich, satisfying mouth-feel.  The Pumpkin Pie Smoothie ~ Two Ways turned out great & we enjoyed them both ways today.  They made for a great mid-afternoon snack/pick-me-up for Meatless Monday.  Yup, more real-time cooking in my kitchen.  Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, Sarah!  :)
