Pumpkin Smoothie

pumpkin smoothie In efforts to enjoy something festive yet also healthy, I decided to make a pumpkin smoothie.

And not just any pumpkin smoothie, but a pumpkin pie smoothie!

If you want a delicious way to get Vitamin A, protein, fiber and omega-3’s, make this.

Here’s what you will need:

1/2 cup of canned pure pumpkin (you could actually use a little more for a stronger pumpkin flavor)

1/2 cup nonfat plan greek yogurt

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup agave nectar (or you could use honey!)

1/2 cup water

1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

2 tablespoons flaxseeds

dash of cinnamon (optional)

pumpkin smoothie pumpkin smoothie greek yogurt pumpkin smoothie agave nectar pumpkin smoothie flaxseed Directions:

Put all ingredients into Vita-mix (or other blender).  If using a regular blender, grind your flaxseeds in a coffee grinder.  If using a Vita-mix, you can put the whole seeds in and it will grind them for you.

Blend until smooth and mixed well.  I added about 6 cubes of ice to get it cold enough to suit my taste!

My picky eater (who just turned 5) even loved it!
