I absolutely love the flavor of pumpkin and can’t go a day without eating almonds, so I found a way to include both in this delicious smoothie recipe. This recipe is full of fiber and nutrients and will help your body detox. This is also a smoothie for any season. While fresh pumpkin would be better in the fall, you can use canned pumpkin any time during the year. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!
1 Chiquita banana
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon ground pecans (grind in coffee grinder)
1/2 cup original almond milk
1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (optional; if you don’t use yogurt, use 1 cup of almond milk)
2-3 ice cubes
Put everything into a blender and blend. Or use an immersion blender. Whichever you prefer! Yep, it’s that easy. And so delicious.

I love bananas, but they give me the worst heartburn for some reason, so I eat them in moderation these days. Which is sad because they are my favorite fruit.
Catherine S says
These look like great recipes. My husband would enjoy all of them unfortunately I am allergic to bananas.
Oh no! It stinks being allergic to good foods.

My favorite thing to make with bananas is banana bread. I use two bananas in my smoothie every morning. I will have to try the Banana Pumpkin Detox Smoothie. It looks delicious. This is a great contest.

Krystal's Kitschkrystal says
That sounds like such a good smoothie! We love bananas in the morning.
I love bananas but cant say I have ever cooked with them. I blend them in smoothies, eat them right out of the peel, or freeze them and make them into ice cream.
Oooh…yum! Make them into ice cream? I’ve never done that. Sounds delish.

I love bananas but I am allergic to them. This smoothie looks so good though. This one may be worth the Benadryl, lol.

That smoothie looks really good! We go through a ton of bananas in this house. I guess I should look into what else I can do with them. LOL!
