Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Have you got a leftover tin of pumpkin puree to use up? We’ve got you covered with a fruity healthy pumpkin smoothie that tastes like pumpkin pie. Don’t even try to resist that!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I always have a couple of cans of pumpkin puree leftover after Thanksgiving. It’s weird, but I always buy too much. It’s like, “I’m making two pies so I need two cans. I’ll buy four just in case.”

In case what?

In case my house is invaded by pumpkin-eating zombies? Why do I do that? Whatever the reason, there are always two tins of pumpkin left and I need to use them up.

This smoothie is a great one for that. It tastes like a pumpkin pie but is packed with fruits and veggies. So after the pumpkin pie leftovers are all eaten, I can keep slurping up those flavors but in a healthier way.
