The holiday season is all about family, fun and food, but sometimes we don’t make the best food choices. Here’s a healthy recipe to help you get your pumpkin fix without eating a ton of sugar.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)
  • 1-1/2 cups ice

 

Directions:

Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend on high for at least 3 minutes or until smooth. Enjoy!

  • Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 3 minutes or until smooth - this may take longer if your blender isn't very strong. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
  • Add more milk to thin out if it is too thick. Add a couple more ice cubes for a thicker texture, if desired. Add more spices to taste, if desired.
  • Enjoy!
