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.
- 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?
