Skip the pricey lattes and try this lower calorie, heart healthy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie recipe courtesy of the American Heart Association.
- Into a blender, add pumpkin, yogurt, milk, oats, honey, pumpkin pie spice, and ice cubes.
- Blend until smooth and frothy, about 1 minute. Pour into a glass and serve.
Cooking Tip: Keeping the can of pumpkin in the fridge before using isn’t necessary, but helps make a colder smoothie.
Keep it Healthy: Make sure to buy 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling or mix, which looks similar but can have added sugar.
Tip: Plain nonfat Greek yogurt, which has more of a tangy taste as well as more protein, can be substituted for the light plain yogurt.
