Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Recipe

One great thing about the fall is the colors, and the PUMPKINS! Who doesn’t love pumpkins? Growing up my favorite dessert was pumpkin pie. I know certain things in it was not good for me, but pumpkin itself has so many health benefits. So when fall arrives I love to make all those yummy pumpkin dishes.


Pumpkin Spice Latte

Servings: 2

  • 2 cups milk or non-dairy alternative, such as soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons canned or fresh pureed pumpkin (unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons Truvia or sweetener of choice
  • 1 scoop (about 2.5 Tbs) Vanilla Nutrimeal
  • 1 tsp Fibergy Plus
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 shots of espresso (about 1/4 cup) or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee

In a saucepan combine milk, pumpkin and sweetener and stir on medium heat until steaming (you can also microwave on high for 2 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in Nutrimeal, Fibergy, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice, then transfer to a blender and whirl for 15 seconds until foamy, then stir in espresso. If you don’t have a blender, whisk thoroughly with a wire whisk.

Optional: Top with light whipped cream if you’re feeling decadent and sprinkle pumpkin pie spice over the top.


Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

One great thing about these recipes is the fiber. Although you are spoiling yourself with a tasty treat, your body is getting the fibers it needs to maintain a healthy heart and circulatory system.
