Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I’m not usually one to come up with something new on my own, let alone write down how much of each ingredient I used. I had an urge to make something with the pumpkin I picked up the other day though, and I decided on a pumpkin pie smoothie. It may seem like a weird choice for the middle of July. It’s been so hot here in Indy though that my body is craving cooler weather and fall flavors – hence (did I use that correctly?), pumpkin pie.

Recipe:
1 cup pure pumpkin
1 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon honey
Stevia to taste
Ice, as needed, for consistency
Ground cloves, ground allspice, and cinnamon to taste

As you can see, more of an idea than a strict recipe. It also looks nasty but tastes delicious. This makes enough for two good-sized servings, so go crazy!

Seems like a lot of sugar, but I was more concerned with the calories. Replace or get rid of the honey for fewer carbs.
