Pumpkin Smoothie

For true pumpkin lovers everywhere.


This recipe makes 4 8oz. servings

  • 1 15oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Whipped cream, optional
  • 1 freezer-safe bag or container
  • 1 microwave-safe dish
  • Blender
  • 4 8oz. glasses or mugs


  1. Place the pumpkin puree in a freezer-safe bag or container. Store in freezer for at least 24 hours.
  2. To soften, remove pumpkin puree from the bag and place in a microwave-safe dish. Heat the pumpkin puree in the microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the milk into the blender. Add the brown sugar, spices, and pumpkin.
  4. Garnish with whipped cream and extra spices on top, if desired.


  • Short on time? Rather than freezing the pumpkin, heat all the ingredients through and simmer for a few minutes for a delicious hot drink.
  • Add more nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves for a more flavorful pumpkin pie taste.
  • For less emphasis on the pumpkin taste, add half of a frozen banana.
