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
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
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.
