Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

If you are a fan of Starbuck’s seasonal favorite, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, you are in luck. We made up our own caffeine-free version in the form of a smoothie and it is damn good. Did I just swear? It’s THAT good.

It includes two of my kid’s favorite things: maple syrup and the blender. The only mistake we made was that we only made one serving to share. (Don’t worry, I’ve included a recipe for 2 servings below)

My little guy is pretty sick right now but this ice cold (yet cozy) smoothie was a perfect way to brighten up his face. I think being allowed to watch movies all day helped as well. Now for the recipe…

    This sounds amazing. I've been wanting a pumpkin spice latte for days, but have a cold and have been avoiding the caffeine. This is perfect and will make my throat feel so much better! Thanks!

    Hmmm…. I wonder if it could make a creamer for coffee. : )

    My daughter and I were just talking about making pumpkin pie milkshakes. I bet I could just sub ice cream for the milk and ice and have a milkshake. Yum!

    Oh, and Phyllis–mix pumpkin butter and your choice of plain creamer (cream, half and half, milk, whatever) then pour that in your coffee. Amazing.

    hi marisa,
    consider using pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and i think you've got yourself an ice-cream free milkshake. tastes just as dee-lish but a bit healthier. can't wait to hear how you like it!
