What to do with a leftover can of pumpkin? Well, if you’re lazy and don’t want to make pie, like me, you can make a pumpkin pie smoothie!
I searched high and low on Pinterest for a recipe without banana as I didn’t have one and decided to make my own. I also didn’t have pumpkin pie spice, so there’s that.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
We use so many spices and in such quantities in our cooking, that it seems a shame to keep such a one trick pony. So while I don’t have PPS, I did have cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and allspice and that’s exactly the same thing! You can scale this recipe up if you tend to use more PPS.
- 2 t cinnamon
- 1 t ginger
- 1/2 t each: nutmeg, allspice, cloves
If you’re making a large batch, be sure to mix thoroughly.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie (Serves 4)
- 1 can pumpkin puree
- 2 can coconut milk
- 4 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
- 1 t sweetener of your choice, I used 1 t of sugar-free caramel syrup
- In a blender, add the can of pumpkin puree, the coconut milk and the pumpkin pie spice.
- Blend until smooth, you can add ice as well, but I prefer mine a little less cold!
This recipe gives about 4 servings. I didn’t want to make these all at once, so I used a mason jar to store the second half for the next day. I added everything into the jar and poured it into the blender when ready. It was super easy.
If you want to make it more of a meal, be sure to add the protein powder of your choice.
This was a Pinterest find in that I found what I needed to make something I wanted. I enjoyed this recipe and think I may make it regularly.
I hope you all enjoy this and please let me know if you enjoyed in the comments section!
