Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

A fall inspired pumpkin banana smoothie that tastes just like pumpkin pie except a whole lot healthier for you.

Ok, perhaps the last two pumpkin treats were slightly premature considering it was still almost 80 degrees outside. But yesterday, it was a crisp and sunny 65. I wore jeans and grabbed a fleece in the late afternoon when the sun went down. Sounds like pumpkin weather to me!

So, I broke out the next can in my pantry stash to come up with a light lunch knowing we were going out to dinner to celebrate.

Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

There’s a banana pumpkin mousse cake from Barefoot Contessa that my mom has made a few times at Thanksgiving. A slightly different take on pumpkin pie and absolutely delicious. Is anything she makes not delicious? This smoothie tastes like that pie in liquid form. I highly suggest making both.

The only thing that would’ve made this better? Some whipped cream on top, Starbucks style.

Healthy Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

There are about 10,000 trees on our property. These leaves are going to be the bane of our existence in a few weeks when every single minute of the weekend is spend blowing, raking, mowing and bagging them. I got a head start with the smoothie photo shoot.

    I don’t know what happened…it was hot when I left for Florida and now it is freezing. I love it. I cannot wait to whip out the pumpkin. I tried making smoothies with it a few times last year with no luck. I am definitely going to try this out!

    I just tried it this morning and it was wonderful! I wanted mine a little thicker for breakfast so I reduced the milk a tad and added a couple of spoons of plain yogurt… completely filling and perfect for fall! Thanks!
