Pumpkin Pie Smoothie -
dessert Without the Calories

If you love pumpkin pie but just want to skip the whole pastry thing, then why not try a pumpkin pie smoothie.  You can still enjoy the wonderful earthy, spicy flavors of pumpkin pie with way less calories and less hassle. 

There’s no rolling out pastry (if you make your own), no need to turn on your oven, just pull out your blender.  The whole thing is ready in just a few minutes. 

And they’re so much healthier.  This is pumpkin pie without the added fat and sugar, but is so substantial it will leave you feeling full and satisfied.   You’ll think you’ve just scoffed down a wonderful dessert instead of a healthy smoothie. 

How do you make these smoothies taste like pumpkin pie?  Well basically whatever flavors go into a pie, can be replicated in a smoothie.   There are many different recipes out there, but I think these ones capture the essence and flavors of that fall classic. 

Please enjoy.
