I had a can of pumpkin puree (leftover from Pumpkin Whoopie Pies) to use up, so I whipped up -- or rather, blended -- this simple smoothie for breakfast. Increase the honey (or other alternative sweetener) if you want a sweeter flavor. Throw in more pumpkin spice if you want it, well, spicier.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup soymilk (plain or vanilla-flavored, low-fat if possible)
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 banana, cut up and frozen
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or agave nectar but less because it's sweeter)
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice (or mix of ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon)
  • 4 -5 medium ice cubes

Directions

  1. Place a cut-up banana in a freezer-friendly container and store in the freezer overnight to freeze.
  2. In the morning, add the soymilk, pumpkin puree, banana pieces, honey, wheat germ, spices and ice cubes to a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Serve.
