I have to admit that I’ve been trying pumpkin in various recipes … but never in a smoothie. For some reason it seemed to me that it wouldn’t go very well. I’ve been asked for a recipe for a pumpkin smoothie and while searching for good ideas I ran over a recipe that used apples and oats alongside pumpkin. I loved the idea, a healthy and nutritious recipe that kids might enjoy as well, so I gave this Pumpkin Apple Smoothie a try.

This smoothie is incredible, beyond my expectations. It is true when everybody says that it tastes like a cake just in a healthier way. Pumpkin and apples are making such a good combination turning this pumpkin apple smoothie into a perfect fall treat. You can start your day with this pumpkin apple smoothie or have it as a snack later in the day.

My daughters would never eat roasted pumpkin by itself, if I hide it in various recipes like my chocolate pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin roll, pumpkin dutch baby pancake and now in smoothies they like it very much. I even filled some popsicle molds with some of this smoothie, put them in the freezer and turned them into an incredible treat they enjoyed later.

This recipe for Pumpkin Apple Smoothie is adapted after Kristine’s Kitchen with slightly few changes. Added some more pumpkin and a whole banana, some honey and a bit of vanilla along with all the pumpkin pie spice. Give it try, it is a must for this time of the year.
