Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe


Click here to go to our recipes

Our pumpkin smoothie recipe is just so delicious that we suggest you just indulge at traditional times such as Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Because our smoothies are made from canned pureed pumpkin, you can enjoy a smoothie at any time of the year - while sitting by the fire on a cold dark January or February night or the next time you go for a picnic on a warm summer’s day.

Smoothies are also a great way to kick start your day at breakfast time. Whatever time you choose - they are perfect.

We have used cows’ milk in our recipe but if you have an allergy to dairy or just don’t like it, take a look at some non dairy alternatives. Coconut milk is a good choice for both of our smoothie recipes, with the extra added health benefits it has.

Health Benefits of our pumpkin smoothie recipe

Pumpkins are full of vitamin C, Vitamin E and Potassium. So what do those vitamins and mineral do?

Vitamin C - pumpkin is full of vitamin C which helps us fight off infection such as colds and flu.

Vitamin E is perhaps one of the best known anti-oxidants which can help protect our bodies from pre-mature ageing and some diseases such as cancer.

Potassium - this helps give us lots of energy, maintains our bones and helps control our blood pressure.

Cooking your own pumpkin

If you want to cook your own pumpkin rather than use canned pumpkin then it’s as easy as, and very similar to, boiling potatoes.

1. Chop the flesh of the pumpkin into small pieces.

2. Place the pumpkin pieces into a pan of salted water.

3. Boil for about 20 minutes or until tender.

4. When cooked - drain.

5. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste buds.

6. Mash the pumpkin just as you would mashed potatoes.

Interesting Facts

One cup of cooked pumpkin has about 49 calories in it - just another good reason to enjoy a smoothie.

Did you know if you eat your five a day fruit and vegetables, it helps prevent heart disease, cancer and strokes?
