Recipe from Bites: Pumpkin Smoothie

by Jessie on October 19, 2012

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


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.

Costco is generally where we pick up our canned pumpkin because it’s such a fantastic deal, but you can also find it at most grocery stores.  Amazon also sells the fantastic Farmer’s Market organic pumpkin in packs of 12.
