This easy-to-make treat offers a taste of pumpkin pie in a glass . . . perfect for when you're short on time.
Like most smoothies, this Fall version is versatile, too.
You can substitute the milk base with yogurt, rice milk, or even almond milk, depending on your dietary restrictions.
And if you like your smoothies extra sweet, then add an extra Tablespoon of brown sugar. You can also substitute the brown sugar for honey, if you prefer a more natural sweetener.
I add vanilla protein powder (and a little extra milk) when I'm making one for my little ones.
And for an extra special treat, I serve it with graham crackers or cinnamon graham crackers . . . so yummy!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
. . . . .
