‘Tis the season for many pumpkin recipes, and here’s one for all the WW people out there. This one was given to me courtesy of my WW meeting last week and I knew I had to try it…and make a few tweaks.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie:
2 WW Points!
- 1 packet Weight Watchers French Vanilla Smoothie mix (or vanilla smoothie mix/whey of your choice)
- 1 cup cold water
- 2-4 tablespoons frozen pumpkin
- dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
So I know what you’re thinking….what’s with the frozen pumpkin? Well a lot of recipes call for a cup of pumpkin, which means you don’t need the whole can. SO I put some parchment paper on a cookie sheet, used a tablespoon to put dollops onto the sheet then threw the sheet in the freezer. Once the dollops are frozen remove them from the cookie sheet and put them in a zip lock bag and back into the freezer for later! If you have an extra ice cube tray you could fill the compartments and freeze them that way. OR if you don’t want to go to all that trouble you can use room temperature pumpkin and then add some ice to your blender for similar results.
Add all ingredients to a blender and enjoy!
