Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-1

Here’s your recipe line up. I used my Nature Box granola, but any of your favorite type of granola will do the trick.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-2

We love our Blendtec, but any high powered blender will work great. Let’s start by adding the ice cubes into the blender.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-3

Time for the almond milk. I prefer vanilla almond milk. Adds a little “extra” vanilla which is always a good idea.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-6

ย Some ground cinnamon up next.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-7

A few tablespoons of vanilla pudding mix. This is a secret ingredient that makes the smoothie thick and fabulous. You can however leave it out and still have a great smoothie.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-8

Almost ready to blend!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-9

A little splash of vanilla.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie-10

Some of your favorite granola.

    This is one of my all time favorite smoothies to make! I buy cases of canned pumpkin from Amazon so I can have it all year round ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the idea of adding granola – it’s like combining your bowl of cereal with the perfect autumn dessert! I often add cooked quinoa to my smoothies for a little boost in protein and added creaminess, but I’m definitely going to try granola next time around.
