Give a toast to autumn with a glass of this creamy pumpkin pie smoothie!
Sooo smooth and a little spicy, too. Delicious pumpkin flavour with a hint of vanilla, and maple. And there's an additional flavour layer on the bottom! So yummy!
Pumpkin season is upon us and we all want to participate in the deliciousness! This smoothie recipe is very flexible and easy to make. The amount of protein per serving will vary according to the type of yogurt and non-dairy milk used. You could add protein powder to boost the protein content if you wish. I used maple syrup to sweeten the smoothie. You can adjust the amount according to your taste, or use another sweetener if you prefer.
Those requiring a FODMAP friendly recipe can enjoy this smoothie, too! There's only 1/4 cup of pumpkin purée per serving. That amount has been given a low-FODMAP rating by Monash University.
So, please join me in a toast to autumn as we both lift our glasses of this pumpkin pie smoothie!
