Not So Scary Pumpkin Smoothie

I know, (sigh)…. another pumpkin drink recipe…. but with all the artificial flavored beverages out there, very few are made with real pumpkin.  I made this thick and creamy smoothie to taste like a slice of pumpkin pie (without the guilt) and added a carrot to the mix.  It’s a real bump up in your vitamin A intake…just in time for trick-or-treating in the dark!

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/2 cup of pumpkin, canned, frozen or cooked fresh

1 peeled carrot cut in blender friendly chunks

3/4 cup almond milk unsweetened

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon molasses with extra for drizzling on top

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger

3 ice cubes

In your blender or bullet, mix all ingredients until smooth. Pour into two glasses and drizzle with a little more molasses.  Trust me, this is a pumpkin drink that will give you goose bumps….. the good ones! Getting your veggies in doesn’t have to be scary!
