To start the weekend off right I want to leave you with this delicious pumpkin pie smoothie. Thanksgiving is less than a week away and this would be a great smoothie to get your Thanksgiving ideas flowing. One sip and you will think it is a pumpkin pie in a cup. The pumpkin flavor with the milk makes this smoothie thick like pumpkin pie filling. As with any Fall recipe nutmeg and cinnamon are the spices that bring it all together.
All that is needed for this recipe are a few simple ingredients and a blender. It can't get any simpler than that. To personalize this smoothie you could add some pecan bits if you want even more flavor and texture added. Coconut is also another option.
