Nutritious Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Bennett and I love enjoying our morning smoothies together on the days I'm off work. I like to have fun experimenting with new recipes and my sweet little boy always seems to love them and slurps down all of the different combinations I create for him. He is such a picky eater right now and it is a great and easy way to sneak in some nutritious fruits and veggies into his diet. My favorite go-to morning smoothie this fall has been this "Pumpkin Pie Smoothie". I put in in quotes because it definitely doesn't taste as decadent as a real pumpkin pie but the addition of the fall spices and sweet puréed pumpkin makes it a tasty lighter morning treat.

This smoothie combines pure pumpkin purée (I use an organic brand from my grocery store), vanilla greek yogurt, banana, a little agave, almond milk and an array of fall spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. I generally leave the whipped cream off mine but do occasionally add a little unsweetened whipped cream in Bennett's since he loves it so much.

Nutritious Pumpkin Pie Smoothie   (recipe makes 1 large smoothie)

Ingredients-

1/2 cup pure pumpkin purée (make sure you're not buying pumpkin pie filling since it contains a lot of added sugar)
6 oz vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 frozen banana (I keep multiple peeled bananas in my freezer at all times to use in smoothies)
1 tsp agave (you can substitute honey if you prefer)
Pinch of ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, ground ginger and ground cloves
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (of course you can substitute dairy milk if you prefer or if there is a nut allergy)

Instructions- 

Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. I make all my smoothies in a NutriBullet Pro 900 Series and love it! Top with whipped cream and some more ground cinnamon if desired. Enjoy the taste of fall!
