Creamy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Tis the season for all things pumpkin spice, and since Canadian Thanksgiving has just danced past us, I had some fresh pumpkin puree kicking around. Of course, I’m a smoothie girl, so, naturally, this happened.

The spice combination is taken directly from this pumpkin pie recipe (which also talks about how to make pumpkin puree) because when you know something is good, why mess around with it?

Creamy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie (family sized)

1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup coconut milk (use from the can – it’s the creamiest)
1 banana
20 dried dates
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
2 trays of ice

Blend it all up!  *Pro tip: for blending ease, make sure you place the liquid and soft foods at the bottom and the ice on top (last in).

Here’s an illustrated recipe card (check out others here).
Feel free to print out for personal use.
