Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin Smoothie

This is a favorite family recipe! For an 'on the go' breakfast, I serve these to my family in plastic, disposable cups with a straw when they need it 'on the go'. What a delicious way to get Vitamin A! This smoothie was garnished with pineapple mint and spearmint.

1 cup soymilk

1 medium banana, frozen and broken into pieces

1/4 cup solid pack pumpkin

a dash or two of cinnamon

a dash of nutmeg

1/2 tsp. stevia (or to taste)

Place all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until very smooth. Delicious! Serves two.

***We enjoy this recipe year around. There's supposed to be a shortage of pumpkin this year because of flood conditions where pumpkins are grown. So --- to be prepared, we bought a case of pumpkin! It was even on sale for the holiday.


  1. This sounds unusual to me. I love pumpkin but never thought about drinking it. But if it is from sweet La Tea Dah, I know it is good! Will give it a try :)

  2. This is a great recipe! For a variation idea,check out the pumpkin smoothie recipe on "Sip the world". Glass Dharma's blog:
    Cooking with pumpkin is very healthy and delicious! My parents used to make a hot pumpkin soup!

  3. Hi Gal!! What's doing??? I am having a delightful weekend, how about you? Yesterday our soon to be 21 yo skydived!! What a blast! I will be sharing it on a post soon! The whole fam may jump next time!! (attached to a professional, of course!!)

    Thank you for your sweet compliments on my placecards! The font is Normal Harrington from Microsoft Word and the size is 26.

    I have some antique sheet music that I am going to copy and make small scrolls out of to place at each setting with things I am thankful for about that person too.
    Then the rest of the magic will be in the kitchen!! WOOHOO!! And I just love praising God for all of His many blessings, don't you??!!

    May your celebration of thanks be filled with joy and memory making moments!!

    Love to you, sweetie!!
