It's September & fall is in the air. The days are starting to get cooler and the nights are perfect for sleeping with the windows open. Autumn is my favorite season; it always has been. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. In fact, I dread the summer heat and I much prefer the cool weather of autumn and even the cold weather of winter.
The other day, I was putting out all of my fall decor. I lit my 5 pumpkin candles and decorated to my heart's content. I decided that having a pumpkin-y snack would make the afternoon that much better. So I created this fabulous recipe.
This smoothie taste like I tossed one of my mom's pumpkin pies straight into a blender. It's that good. The best news is that pumpkin is low FODMAP when consumed in 1/4 cup serving or less. This recipe only contains 1/4 cup of pumpkin per serving so FODMAPers, have at it!
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (I used Libby's. Make sure it's pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 cup ice
- Mix all ingredients in a blender.
