Ingredients:

  • ½ cup canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/3/cup skim milk
  • 2 Tbsp. rolled oats
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 3-4 ice cubes

  • Into a blender, add pumpkin, yogurt, milk, oats, honey, pumpkin pie spice and ice cubes.
  • Blend until smooth and frothy, about 1 minute.
  • Pour into a glass and serve.

Cooking Tip:  Keeping the can of pumpkin in the fridge before using isn't necessary, but helps make a colder smoothie.

Keep it Healthy:  Make sure to buy 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling or mix, which looks similar but can have added sugar.

Tip:  Plain nonfat Greek yogurt, which has more of a tangy taste as well as more protein, can be substituted for the light plain yogurt.
