"Another recipe found in my Grandparentsdotcom Newsletter - "From the weight loss cheerleaders at Sparkpeople comes a light breakfast smoothie that tastes just like dessert. Low in calories, high in fiber & a veritable fountain of vitamin A, canned pumpkin is a true super-food. That’s why THE SPARKPEOPLE COOKBOOK author(Meg Galvin) uses it as the base of this delectably light smoothie. Sprinkle the top w/oatmeal, graham cracker crumbs or even a crushed vanilla wafer for added texture & taste." Enjoy!"

Step 1

If your fruit is fresh, add it when you blend the liquids. If it’s frozen, add it at the end, use the ice crush setting on your blender & pulse until combined.

Step 2

To ensure a perfect smoothie every time, blend your fresh fruit, nut butters & liquids first. Pulse a few times to break up the chunks, then process until smooth. The time will vary based on your blender; it could take up to 2 min to reach the consistency you desire. Once the fruit & liquids are processed, add the ice or frozen fruit, pulse a few times & process until thoroughly blended.

Great smoothie. Really tastes like pumpkin pie. I didn't read all the way through the description, so threw the graham cracker into the blender with everything else, instead of crumbling it on top, but loved it that way, since it made it taste like the smoothie also had the pie crust.
