Delicious Honey Pumpkin Smoothie with Cinnamon
This delicious Honey Pumpkin Smoothie with Cinnamon is loaded with all the spices of the Fall season. It's like a slice of pumpkin pie in a glass with none of the guilt!
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree frozen (not pumpkin pie filling!)
- 1/2 cup milk any type you wish- 1%, 2%, whole, soy, almond, etc.
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon honey to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of nutmeg
- Pinch of ground ginger
- Crushed graham crackers; optional
To make the smoothie, first add the milk, Greek yogurt and frozen pumpkin puree to a blender. Pulse for a few seconds, and then add the remainder of the ingredients with the exception of the honey. Blend until the mixture becomes smooth, creamy and begins to foam.
Once everything is fully blended, add in half of the honey and then blend again. Taste the mixture, and then add in as much additional honey as needed to achieve your desired level of sweetness.
Your pumpkin pie smoothie is now ready to be enjoyed as is. However, if you are planning on serving the smoothies to guests and want to add an extra special touch, you can try topping each glass of smoothie with a small handful of crushed graham crackers. The graham crackers work to add a bit of crunch to the drink, while also helping to further replicate the taste and sensation of eating a delicious piece of pumpkin pie.
