This healthy pumpkin smoothie is creamy, includes a serving of orange vegetables, and to be honest, kind of tastes like dessert. What’s not to like?

Prep Time:10 minutes
Total Time:10 minutes
Yield:1 serving 1x
1/2 large frozen banana
3 fresh figs
1/3 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
2 Tbsp cinnamon almond butter (see notes)
1 cup milk (of choice!)
2–3 ice cubes
1 Tbsp hemp hearts, plus more for topping
Extra cinnamon to garnish
Add all ingredients except hemp hearts and cinnamon to a blender(affiliate) and and blend on high until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a glass, then top with hemp hearts and cinnamon. Serve immediately.
If you can’t find cinnamon almond butter (or don’t want to buy it for just this one recipe), feel free to substitute plain almond butter + 1/4 tsp cinnamon.
Frozen bananas: I keep a gallon size zip top bag of peeled (overripe) bananas in my freezer at all times. Just break in half before adding to you blender(affiliate). It makes for a really creamy consistency and adds natural sweetness to smoothies.
