Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe - Delicious,
Creamy and Very Healthy

I usually make this delicious spiced pumpkin smoothie with any I have leftover after I've made my pies and cookies. 

If you don't have any leftovers you can use canned, or roast, boil or steam some fresh especially for your smoothie.

Chilled Spiced Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients: (makes 2 servings)

½ a can (200g) puréed pumpkin (or 1 cup of cooked)
2 cups (500 ml) milk
1 cup (250 ml) yoghurt (plain or vanilla)
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla essence
Agave nectar, honey or maple syrup to sweeten

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon

Directions:

  • In your blender or food processor, blend until smooth the canned or pre-cooked vegetable, milk, yoghurt, vanilla essence and spice mix
  • Add as much of agave/honey/syrup as you prefer and serve. Or, as I like to do, chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour first

Cooking Fresh...

To cook this vegetable, just chop in half, remove the seeds, and place in an oven at 180c (350f) for 30-45 minutes, or until soft.

Scoop out the flesh and use according to the recipe.

Or an even quicker way...

Chop in half, remove the seeds and skin and cut into 1 inch cubes (3cm) before steaming or boiling for 7-15 minutes, or until soft.

Note: You can veganize this smoothie if you use soy or rice milk and soy yoghurt, it's delicious and healthy either way!
