This healthy pumpkin smoothie is like chilled pumpkin pie in a glass, but without the fat and calories. This thick and creamy smoothie makes a delicious and filling liquid breakfast or an energy-boosting 'snack.' Be sure to use a very ripe banana, preferably frozen, and sweeten your smoothie according to your preference.
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 very ripe medium-sized banana
3/4 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt (I used Oikos 0% fat Greek vanilla yogurt)
1 Tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crushed ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth, making sure the ice is completely crushed.
Makes two servings.
