Easy Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin is a low-calorie food that is full of nutrients, including vitamins C and A. This pumpkin smoothie is easy to make and tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass!

In a blender, add

  • 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  • A big dash of cinnamon
  • A small dash each of nutmeg, ground ginger and ground cloves
  • 1/2 cap of vanilla extract (pour extract into cap to measure)
  • A splash of apple juice or water
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Sweetener to taste: 1 to 2 tsp honey, brown sugar, maple syrup or regular sugar

Blend until smooth and pour into glass. If desired, top with whipped cream (from a can) and a drizzle of Hershey’s caramel syrup or extra shake of cinnamon.

P.S. You’ll have canned pumpkin leftover. Put in a container and refrigerator for more smoothies. Discard any leftover pumpkin after 5 to 7 days.
