Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

If you have a bit of canned pumpkin left over from a baking project, this is something you can do with it. This kefir-based smoothie with pumpkin purée, cinnamon, and ginger, calls to mind the flavour of the classic Thanksgiving dessert.


Makes 2 servings

Ingredients


1½ cups kefir

⅔ canned pumpkin purée

1 frozen ripe banana, broken into chunks

2 dried dates, chopped

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger


Instructions


Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth.




I do not provide nutrition analyses of the recipes I post for various reasons, but mostly because I would rather not uphold diet culture messaging about choosing foods based on their caloric value or macronutrient composition. Humans survived for millennia without knowing the calorie and nutrient content of the foods they ate. They were fine – really.
