Pumpkin Smoothie

The first day of Fall was yesterday!! I'm so excited to break out the scarves and sweaters and Pioneer Woman came through for me with a delicious pumpkiny goodness treat to try! It tastes like a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte minus the latte! It is super yummy and the crushed cinnamon cracker topping is a must! If you like pumpkin or smoothies, or both then you need to go try this right now.

Here's the recipe (taken straight from Pioneer Woman's blog):


1 Can Pumpkin Pie Filling
3 Cups Whole Milk (I did 1 1/2 C. Milk & 1 1/2 C. of Half & Half)
1/2 C. Vanilla Yogurt
Few Dashes of Cinnamon
Cinnamon Graham Crackers (crushed)

Ahead of time place pumpkin pie filling into a freezer safe container and place in the freezer for a few hours or until frozen solid. When it's frozen combine first four ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the smoothie into pretty glasses and top them off with some crumbled crackers.

Makes: About 8 Servings

Note: If you are like me and make your pumpkin pies with the Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin just add the sugar and spices to the pumpkin puree and you are good to go. DO NOT add the milk or eggs.
