What to do with Leftover Pumpkin Puree or Pumpkin Pie
Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and in a couple of days you might have some pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice leftover...or even a few slices of pumpkin pie! This recipe is somewhere in between a smoothie and a milkshake, and you get to decide how healthy, sweet, or creamy you want to make it. No matter what, you'll end up with a delicious treat.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie or Milkshake (Pick your own adventure):
3/4 cup of pumpkin puree (or the filling of your leftover pie)
1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
1 cup of milk of your choice
Up to 1/4 cup of maple syrup (depending on how sweet you want it)
1 scoop of protein powder of your choice (vanilla or chocolate would both work)
2 teaspoons of vanilla or maple extract
Feel free to throw in a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a bit of cream
1 cup of ice
Blend it all together and enjoy topped with some white chocolate chips or a sprinkle of cinnamon!
