Pumpkin and banana make this smoothie naturally sweet
Pumpkin and bananas are naturally sweet. As such, this smoothie is pleasantly mild without any additional sweeteners.
Adapted it to have less sugars
The ingredients are all safe and healthy, even for a toddler. To make this pumpkin smoothie even more kid-friendly though I sometimes make it with even less sugars.
To do that, I swap out the vanilla Greek yogurt with plain Greek yogurt. If you want even less sugars, you can reduce the amount of maple syrup too.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie has a velvety texture
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is one of the tastiest ways to get a big dose of nutrients and fiber. Imagine having a velvety soft serve that is just thin enough to drink through a straw.
It is almost like drinking a cream dessert. You might even forget that it is a healthy smoothie.
Because of that, it is very much deserving of its place at the breakfast table. All. Year. Round.
