Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin Smoothie

Fall is filled with beautiful colors, cool air, baked goods and lots of pumpkins. And so here is another pumpkin recipe that I wanted to share with you. It’s a wonderful Pumpkin Smoothie and it can be made with either vanilla yogurt or milk for a thinner version, either way it’s super delicious. If your making it with yogurt I would recommend using a regular yogurt instead of a greek yogurt to avoid that sometimes “dry after-taste” you notice with greek yogurt.

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful season as much as I am. 🙂

Honeydew-Kiwi Smoothie

This smoothie is a little tart and acidic but very refreshing. Kiwi is one of my favorite fruits. It tastes a little like a cross between banana and pineapple. If you don’t do well with the seeds from the kiwi, run smoothie through a fine mesh sieve before enjoying. The original recipe called for mint but since I am not really a mint lover it was an easy decision to leave it out. I hope you enjoy this.

Lets blend

Ingredients:

2 cups honeydew melon, seeded (cut into 1-inch cubes)

1 1/4 cups kiwi, peeled (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon honey

2 cups ice cubes

Directions:

Place all ingredients in blender and process until smooth. Serve cold.

Mango-Banana Smoothie

  

Mango Banana Smoothie

Smoothies, so versatile. Cool, filling, fruity, healthy….impossible to resist. You can have whatever flavor your heart desires, granted that you’re able to locate the desired fruit at your local grocery store.  Mango’s are loaded with vitamin C and A as well as Potassium. It is aromatic, juicy and has a fibrous flesh.  A Mango can be a little tricky to cut up because of the large flat stone in the middle and so if you need a little advice on how to cut up a mango here  is a link with 3 different ways to slice and dice it.   

Ingredients:   

1/2 banana  

2 cups freshly chopped mango (approx 2 mango’s)  

1 cup orange juice  

3 tablespoon vanilla yogurt  

Optional: 1/4 cup uncooked oats (not instant)  

   

Mango Ingredients

Directions:   

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high-speed until smooth. If you choose to use the optional uncooked oats it may come out a little on the thick side, if you wish to thin it out just add some more orange juice.
