Pumpkin Smoothie

Recommended Posts

This is my version of the pumpkin smoothie recipe my leader handed out. I tweaked it just a little bit.

 

Pumpkin Smoothie:

1 packet WW Vanilla smoothie powder (1 point)

1-cup nonfat milk (2 points)

½ cup pumpkin (I used canned) (0 points)

¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (I used the pre-made stuff from Schilling) (0 points)

2 sprinkles cinnamon (because I don’t think the Schilling has enough) (0 points)

A few drops of vanilla extract (0 points)

A few drops of almond extract (0 points)

4 ice cubes (0 points)

 

Blend first 7 ingredients together. Add ice & blend.

 

My leader’s recipe used a lot more vanilla extract & no almond extract. Plus, I added a little more cinnamon because I thought the Schilling stuff was too clove-y & ginger-y. The ice also helps because IMHO, the smoothie powder mixes a bit too thick & has a funny taste to it. If you add the ice, the consistency is better & the funny taste goes away.

This is awesome. Last night I was contemplating having my usual shake made with SF FF pudding powder and Milk b/c cleaning the blender is not too fun. Then I remembered this idea and I tried it. It is so good!!!!! My roommate who is doing atkins was drooling but "couldn't have it" because it was high in carbs.

Here is my recipe

1/3 to 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin

2 T FF SF Vanilla pudding powder

1 cup of milk

2-3 packets of Equal

cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

12 medium ice cubs.

Blend it all together and it is so thick!!!!

mmmmmm Pumpkin ice cream


Its worth every ounce of determination and self-discipline required to make this a lifestyle!

Hi,

I made the smoothie tonight and it was delicious.

I added a bit of davinci caramel syrup as I did not have any almond extract or vanilla in the house and it still turned out quite yummy.

Thanks for bumping this up. I'll have to try it. I love the Pumpkin Pie cappucino from our gas station in the fall and this might be a great sub!

Okay, I have to admit, I was hesitant... but I finally made it last night for my pre workout snack... OMG, it was really good! I didn't have any vanilla smoothies so I used a tablespoon of sf/ff cheesecake pudding powder. It was wonderful. I also have one this morning to take with me for after WI, thank you for sharing!!!

The NI i got when i put it thru Mastercook (for the pudding version) (taking out the NI for the pumpkin) = 3.7 Points

Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 184 Calories; trace Fat (2.2% calories from fat); 8g Protein; 37g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 4mg Cholesterol; 701mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1 Non-Fat Milk; 1 1/2 Other Carbohydrates.

 

With the Pumpkin in it: 3.9 Points Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 212 Calories; 1g Fat (2.8% calories from fat); 9g Protein; 43g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 4mg Cholesterol; 705mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1 1/2 Vegetable; 1 Non-Fat Milk; 1 1/2 Other Carbohydrates.

 

If the milk is cut down a bit (to 3/4 cup) It gets down to 3.3 points (without the NI for the pumpkin in it)Per Serving (excluding unknown items): 163 Calories; trace Fat (1.8% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 34g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 3mg Cholesterol; 669mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1/2 Non-Fat Milk; 1 1/2 Other Carbohydrates. But i don't know how it would affect the consistency - could always add some water to it to make up the "volume".
