Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Benefits

A 50g serving of pumpkin contains just 17 calories, yet provides more than your entire day’s vitamin A needs. It’s low in fat and cholesterol, whilst containing dietary fibre to aid digestion.

Fresh pumpkins are available from the end of September until November, but you can always use canned pumpkin puree if you fancy it at another time of the year. And unlike most canned products, you don’t need to worry about any crazy additives or preservatives, since it’s generally just 100% pumpkin.

Ingredients

  • 50g (¼ cup) fresh pumpkin or canned pumpkin puree
  • 120ml (½ cup) coconut yogurt or coconut milk
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

    1. If you’re using fresh pumpkin, then peel and blend it until you have a smooth puree. If you’re using canned puree then you can skip this step.
    2. Blend the puree with the coconut yogurt and ground cinnamon.
    3. Add a little water if needed, until you get your desired smoothie consistency.

Inspired by Starbucks’ now legendary pumpkin spiced latte, we thought we’d put our own Blendery twist on it. Oh, and add coconut… Because you can never have too much coconut in your life. Obviously.

Optional Upgrades

For an even sweeter smoothie, try adding a drop of vanilla extract. Spice-wise, you can swap cinnamon for mixed spice, pumpkin pie spice, or nutmeg, which all make great alternatives. Lastly, adding a dessert-spoon of ground flax will super-boost the dietary fibre content, along with omega-3 fatty acids.

Other Useful Tips?
