Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I love Fall. I love all the colors of the leaves and the flavors of the food like butternut squash and pumpkin. Not only is pumpkin low fat naturally, it is full of beta-carotene which the body converts to Vitamin A.  Fall and all the holidays that come with it wouldn't be complete in my mind without some Pumpkin Pie.  Here is a healthy smoothie that tastes just like the pie. The yogurt gives the whip cream like flavor and no crust means less calories. Drink up and give Thanks without the guilt.

*I have listed ingredients for both a Vegetarian and a Vegan version based off of your choice of Yogurt and milk.


  • 1/4 can of Pumpkin Pie filling
  • 3oz of Greek Style Plain yogurt (like Chobani) or Vegan Yogurt (like Nogurt or Silk)
  • 1 tblspoon Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Almond milk or milk of choice 
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • nutmeg and cinnamon

Combine Pumpkin Pie, yogurt, brown sugar, and crushed ice into blender. Begin to blend. Add almond milk (or milk of your choice) slowly until you have the desired consistency. Less milk will make a thicker smoothie and more milk a little creamier. Once completely blended pour into glass and sprinkle with a little nutmeg and cinnamon to garnish and spice up. Stick a straw in it and give thanks.
