This creamy pumpkin smoothie is a refreshingly scrumptious blend of pumpkin, peaches, and cozy fall spices.
What's the Story Behind this Recipe?
You can thank Fantasy Sports for this Pumpkin Smoothie recipe. One fall night when Mr B was deep into the draft for his leventy-seventh fantasy team (which are not real, guys, in case you were confused). I got bored and I started throwing things in the blender. When I was done, we had this delicious Peachy Pumpkin Smoothie!
This peach-pumpkin combo is super-tasty! It's so good, in fact, that Mr. B actually came back to reality long enough to tell me so.
What Goes into this Recipe
This smoothie recipe is a great way to use up extra pumpkin puree!
Ingredient Notes & Substitutions
★ Pumpkin puree: Use fresh or canned puree. Fresh pumpkin puree will result in more smoothie delicate flavor.
★ Frozen peaches: Use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches.
Fresh: Peel and slice a large peach and put it into a resealable plastic bag. Freeze for at least an hour.
Canned: Drain peaches and put about a one peach-worth in a bowl. Coer and freeze for at least an hour.
Don't have any peaches? Try using an orange, pear, or apple instead.
★ Pumpkin spice: Just so happens, we have a great pumpkin pie spice recipe!
★ Ice cream: You can use ice cream or frozen yogurt for this recipe.
Additional flavors to try: Practically any ice cream or frozen yogurt flavor with the words "pumpkin," "fall" or "harvest" in the name will work.
★ Sweetener: We used powdered sugar to sweeten this smoothie because it seems to preserve the fresh peach flavor a bit more than honey or brown sugar, but you can use the sweetener of your choice.
Adjust the sweetness to your own tastes.
★ Coconut: Mr B and I are divided on this one. I enjoy the additional flavor that coconut brings to the table: he doesn't like the mildly gritty texture it adds. "Smoothies should be smooth," as he says.
★ Orange zest: A little citrus zest brightens almost everything! Orange, pumpkin, and peach flavors all love one another.
How to Make this Smoothie
It doesn't get much easier than this: just combine the ingredients in a blender and blitz everything until smooth.
We used powdered sugar to sweeten this smoothie because it seems to preserve the fresh peach flavor a bit more than honey or brown sugar, but you can use the sweetener of your choice.
If you use canned peaches, hold off on putting in about half the sweetener until you have a taste. Canned peaches can make your smoothie overly.
Peanut Butter protein powder is a delicious nutritional additive in this smoothie! The pumpkin, peach and peanut butter all taste delicious together.
