  2. Banana Sweetness: The natural sweetness of a ripe banana adds a delightful flavor to the smoothie, making it appealing to toddlers without the need for added sugars.
  3. Protein from Yogurt: The yogurt provides a creamy texture while supplying essential protein and probiotics for your child’s growing body.
  4. Seasonal Spices: Pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon give this smoothie its quintessential fall flavor while offering a subtle, warming taste that even the pickiest eaters will love.
  5. Refreshing and Hydrating: The addition of ice gives the smoothie a refreshing and cool taste.

Now, let’s dive into the step-by-step instructions for making this Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie.

Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Ice cubes (as needed)

Instructions:

  1. Start by peeling the ripe banana and breaking it into chunks. This step is perfect for little hands to help with.
  2. In a blender, add the banana chunks, pumpkin puree, yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon.
  3. Add a handful of ice cubes to the blender. The amount of ice you use can be adjusted to achieve the desired thickness and chilliness of the smoothie.
  4. Blend the ingredients on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Be sure to scrape down the sides if needed for an even consistency.
  5. Taste the smoothie and adjust the spices or sweetness if necessary. You can add a touch more cinnamon or a drizzle of honey for added sweetness if your toddler prefers.
  6. Pour the creamy pumpkin smoothie into toddler-friendly cups.

Storage Tips:

If you have any leftovers, the Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, it’s best enjoyed fresh to maintain its creamy texture and flavors. Just give it a quick stir before serving if it separates.
