Here we go. Pumpkin recipe number two. This one uses up, or perhaps annoyingly leaves you with, half a can of pumpkin puree. Never fear. There are more pumpkin recipes coming that will give you additional excuses for opening another can, or using up what’s left from making these smoothies.
This recipe uses traditional pumpkin pie spices, but is a bit tart. If you’d like, add extra maple syrup to make it sweeter. Either way, the earthy pumpkin and tangy yogurt will come through. Sweet, sour, earthy and spicy. Delicious.
Time: 5 minutes
Yield: ~4 cups
2c plain yogurt (or vanilla, omitting the vanilla and maple syrup)
1c pumpkin puree
1-2T maple syrup
½ t ground ginger
½ t ground cloves
½ t ground nutmeg
1-2T coconut oil (optional)
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
