Grain Free Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I mentioned over here that I am not a huge pumpkin fan ... but once in a while I find something that makes me think .... Hmmmmm, not so very bad after all ...

And this is one of those times!



Original recipe comes from Civilized Caveman and of course, I have to do my own things to make it more ME!

Here's how I did it ...

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup apple juice (I used cider, it's what I had)
1/2 frozen banana (I used a whole banana, will do half next time)
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp hemp heart seeds (these are so tasty and loaded with something healthy, I just know it and impart a nutty flavor)
1/2 cup (more or less) ice
small handful of pecans or walnuts, chopped, for garnish if desired.


Guess what you do?



Toss all (except walnuts/pecans) in blender and let it rip til smooth.

Pour in glass and garnish with pecans/walnuts. I didn't have the nuts, so used more hemp seeds and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice ... hit the spot for me!


Enjoy!

  1. Yum! I think I like your idea of cider way better than apple juice (I'm not a fan!)

  2. I am not a big smoothie fan but the picture looked like pudding almost. This also sounds like the flavors are so rich that it might be one I have to try. Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend.
