Pumpkin Smoothie Time!

Pin It Now!

Every year on the first day of fall, we make Pumpkin Smoothies! It's been tradition for over a decade now. Living in the desert, this is the PERFECT first-day-of-fall treat. Anyway, with over 10 years of pumpkin-smoothie-making experience, I am updating the recipe just a smidge. Original post is here if you want to take a peek.

Pumpkin Smoothie

  • 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
  • 1 12 oz. can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Cinnamon, ground

Mix all ingredients in a blender. Sprinkle with cinnamon and blend some more. Pour into glasses, sprinkle with a little more cinnamon, and enjoy! Makes about 5 cups.

  • It's best to start with cold ingredients, so I make sure to put the evaporated milk and canned pineapple juice in the fridge the night before. If you want it extra cold, pour smoothie over ice.
  •  If you want something more healthy, try adding a different sweetener. Personally, I like brown sugar. :)
  • If you're allergic to milk, try a substitute. Maybe coconut milk or almond milk?

Do you have any first-day-of-fall traditions?

my hubby does one like this. I've never liked them, but he thinks it is great. :)
