Kid Friendly Recipe! Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin Smoothie!
It's actually "healthy"!  :-D  Amazing!  They really enjoyed it!

Definitely KID FRIENDLY!  :-D  Those are always good!

We made them not so healthy by adding RediWhip and choc. chip minis.  Yeah, probably shouldn't check out the breakfast in the background either.  :-D

The original recipe came from a kids magazine called Humpty Dumpty.

We tweaked it a bit so this is what we did:
To make 4 mugs (not quite full)

Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.  
Serve right away or refrigerate until you are ready to use.

1/2 C. orange juice
1/2 C. milk
1 C. yogurt (we used vanilla, they suggested plain)
1/2 C. canned pumpkin
1 ripe banana 
1-2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
4-6 ice cubes

You can definitely vary how much banana, pumpkin, spice you put into it!  

This was a great use of our left over canned pumpkin and ripe bananas.  It seems I always have those two.  No recipe ever uses a full can of pumpkin, I have found.  :-D
