I always have a couple 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. So, if you’re feeling all pumpkin pie’d out after Thanksgiving, why not turn that excess pumpkin puree into a healthy breakfast? Although, is there such a thing as too much pumpkin pie? With all these pumpkin pie recipes we’ve been sharing, I’m not sure how any of us could get tired of it.

Either way, if you’re just dying to try a different kind of pumpkin recipe, this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is a great way to do just 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.
