One of my very favorite things about fall, and an easy way to enhance that fall spirit, is drinking pumpkin anything and everything. However, where I live is hot, with temperatures sometimes going into the 80s in the month of November. This means that hot cups of pumpkin tea or coffee aren’t exactly needed or even wanted. So, as a smoothie lover, I’ve turned to smoothies to get my pumpkin fix. I’ve recently perfected my Pumpkin Pie Smoothie, and I love it. It’s yummy, autumnal, healthy, and very filling. And now, you can enjoy this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie whenever you want.
Ice – 1 Cup
Pumpkin Puree (make your own, or from the can) – ½ Cup
Plain Greek Yogurt (if you really like that tarty taste) OR Plain Yogurt – ½ Cup
Orange Juice (for a fruitier, more refreshing taste) OR Almond Milk (for a more classic pumpkin pie taste)- 1½ Cups
Banana – ½ or Whole
Vanilla Extract – 1 Tablespoon
Cinnamon – 2 Teaspoons

Put all ingredients in the blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a favorite cup or mason jar, and enjoy your refreshing Pumpkin Pie Smoothie!
