Pumpkin-Banana Smoothie!

Are you looking for a healthy and delicious Halloween-themed recipe?!
I made the October 2011 Dietitian Pick of the Month recipe at one of my Hy-Vee stores a few days ago, and it was a hit! Many customers really enjoyed the pumpkin and banana flavors combined in addition to a hint of cinnamon! The chef at the store added in fresh nutmeg which smelled and tasted delicious!

Here is the recipe. This smoothie is perfect at breakfast or a mid-morning snack. Plus, kids will love it. What an easy way to add in fruits to their diet.

Banana-Pumpkin Smoothie
All you need:
• 1 or more bananas, fresh or frozen
• 1/2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
• 1/2 cup fat-free milk
• 1/2 cup 100%-pure pumpkin puree
• 1-1/2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 5 ice cubes
All you do:
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and
purée until smooth and frothy.
