A Jar of Pumpkin and Pecan Pie

pumpkin smoothie

I cannot begin to tell you how good this smoothie is! Do not be scared. If ever there was a time to be brave this is it. Our ‘Jar of Pumpkin and Pecan Pie’ is pure comfort food! Rich, thick, heavy and somehow warming. It is sweet, hearty and tastes almost sinful. My toddler drank sculled all of his, then pinched his sisters. Whip it up, I cannot wait to hear what you think.

A Jar of Pumkin and Pecan Pie

1 frozen banana

1 cup of cold roast pumpkin or pumpkin puree

1 handful of pecans

1 teaspooon of cinnamon

    What is cold roast pumpkin?

    • bianca

      It is pumpkin that has been roasted then put in the fridge to cool, you could also use canned pumpkin puree. I hope this helps. Bianca

  • Thanks for sharing this!

    I had some canned pumpkin in the refrigerator that I needed to use, and a pumpkin smoothie sounded like something I needed tonight! 🙂 Canned pumpkin worked fine. It was quite yummy. I didn’t have pecans, and so I used almonds. I also added a tad of maple syrup. Some plain greek yogurt added would probably also be good with it if you can have dairy.

    This sounds so good! I may try it with almond or coconut milk instead of the ice/water.

      Hi Chrissy, it is lovely with almond milk, I hope you like it. Bianca

    It’s pumpkin season here in the U.K (Oct) and this sounds delicious! I’ll have to tell my daughter who owns a “Nutri bullet” squishing machine, but will get my own slave to whizz some up for me first. You have to test these recipes before you pass them on….sometimes 5 or 6 times and then “forget” to let the other person know how scrummy they are!

    • Laughing! I hope you enjoy it. I remember when I first made it, Eamon loved it and he didn’t love much back then! Now he eats everything!
