Cold Weather Smoothie?

I love smoothies.  Like, LOVE smoothies.

In the cold weather though, it's a little hard to justify a freezing cold island-fruity smoothie.  This fall and winter I wanted to try something with a little holiday spin on it.

PRESENTING.... the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie!


Looks great right? And it's easy.  Eaaaaaaasy peasy.  Promise!


Ingredients:
  • Canned pumpkin (about 2 Tbsp. or to taste)
  • 3/4 cup soy milk (or regular milk)
  • Frozen banana
  • Honey
  • Spices: Cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg
In a blender, toss in the pumpkin, milk, and frozen banana.  No ice is needed since the banana has already been frozen!  Blend; add in honey, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice to taste; blend again.  Add freshly ground nutmeg to the top and enjoy! 

Oh, and one more thing.  I know this smoothie seems like a treat, but consider this:
  • Pumpkin is packed with Vitamin A.
  • Soy milk is rich with soy protein (regular milk is good for calcium too).
  • Bananas = potassium and fiber!
  • Cinnamon regulates or reduces blood sugar (glucose) levels.
  • Honey is a great source of antioxidants. 
  • .... Convinced yet?
You will love.  Bon appetit!
