Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
I know many people like their smoothies for breakfast but, in the mornings, I'm a quick bowl of high fiber cereal kind of person. The afternoons, though, are my ideal time for this treat because it gives me natural energy and keeps me full till dinner. Oh, and it's completely delicious...and skinny as well!
1/2 Cup Green style yogurt (I used fat free)
1/2 Cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 Cup milk (I used fat free)
1 Banana, frozen
1 Tablespoon simple syrup or other sweetener
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Dash of salt
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree until completely smooth. Garnish with an additional sprinkling of cinnamon and a cinnamon stick, if desired.
