Low Fat Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I enjoy a smoothie evrey morning so I am always looking for ones that satisfy and taste great.  This one fits the bill.  I use this as my basic recipe, but you can add to it as you see fit.  Sometimes I put in a scoop of whey protein, teaspoon of flaxseed, or a scoop of rolled oats.  My kids like a squirt of whipped cream on top.  Play around with it and see what you like!


Low Fat Pumpkin Pie Smoothie


  • 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 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup crushed ice


Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth, making sure the ice is completely crushed.
