I’m sure Emilie would say that these pumpkin smoothies would taste better if they had been made in her BlendTec but I have to say that my Ninja did a pretty awesome job at whipping up this refreshing smoothie! My kids got a kick out of an orange smoothie. It would be a fun thing to add to a breakfast menu on Halloween morning.
(Adapted from myrecipes.com)
1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup canned pumpkin, chilled
1/2 cup ice cubes
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of ground cloves
1 ripe banana, sliced and frozen
Dash of ground cinnamon (optional)
Combine yogurt and next 8 ingredients (through banana) in a blender, and process until smooth. Garnish with dash of ground cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately.
Emilie says this would be the perfect smoothie to throw in your Beaba Babypote Reusable Squeeze Pouch! Check out her video demo and review here.

If you are wondering where is the best place to get pumpkin, you can pick up organic canned pumpkin at Vitacost for $.99 per can or from Amazon for $1.75/can. Costco also has a great price on Libby’s canned pumpkin this time of year.
