Sugar, spice and everything nice, including vitamins A, B6, C and Beta-Carotene.The banana doesn't have to be frozen, but it's a quick way to make a cold smoothie without dealing with ice. Just peel the banana and wrap it in foil, then put in the freezer overnight.
- 1 cup skim milk (or light soy or almond milk)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1⁄2 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1⁄2 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cardamom
- Put all ingredients in a blender.
- Blend and enjoy!
Really good! Tasted like pumpkin pie to me. I didn't add the honey, but I did add some plain yogurt, 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (instead of cardamon) and a drop of vanilla. So healthy and filling!
I'm absolutely with you when it comes to using frozen bananas (or other frozen fruit) ~ It gives that nice frosty chill without having to water down the beverage with . . . frozen water! As with many of the smoothies that I make, I did add a scoop of protein powder but that didn't change the flavor much, & we both much enjoyed the combo of pumpkin & PB. AND, as with other reviewers, I was generous with the cinnamon! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook tag]
Wow-O! This shake is sooo good. The texture is wonderful, thick and creamy. I love how all the flavors complement each other so well too! I also upped the cinnamon since I love it. I didn't find the need to add any sweetener - I thought the honey made it sweet enough. Plus I always have all the ingredients for this yummy shake handy; it was a great way to use up a little leftover pumpkin today. What a treat after a super tough workout! I agree with CoffeeB, this is definitely a keeper!
