Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

This pumpkin banana smoothie recipe is amazing. I remember saying that I would draw the line at pumpkin for breakfast, but this is a wonderful way to incorporate this healthy food into your morning regime (plus my kids love it).

Pumpkin is so good for you. It’s full of vitamins A and C, as well as being a very low calorie source of energy. Even better both it and banana are full of fibre.

My Pumpkin Banana Smoothie Recipe

You can use fresh or canned pumpkin for this banana pumpkin smoothie recipe. This is definitely one of my best pumpkin smoothie recipes. If you want to add some pumpkin spice, go ahead. I put in a teaspoon of flaxmeal – this is ground linseed and is full of omega 3 and also a good source of fibre. You can get it in your health food store if it’s not on your supermarket shelves. I use it on cereal, in porridge, and in fruit juices and smoothies.

Yield: 4 small smoothies

Delicious high fibre pumpkin banana smoothie recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 banana
  • 2 heaped tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon flaxmeal (optional)
  • 400ml buttermilk (or pouring yoghurt)
  • Dessert spoon of maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender. Serve in a glass immediately. This will keep in the fridge for a couple of days. Or can be frozen if your pumpkin puree has not already been frozen once.

Notes

I used buttermilk for this one as I had some left over from making muffins. Buttermilk used to be left over from the butter making process, but these days it is made by adding lactic acid to milk. It tastes pretty similar to yoghurt I think, but it was lovely for a change. It is a little milder in flavour perhaps. Use whichever one you like best. 

I love maple syrup alongside pumpkin whether in a smoothie or on a pancake! There are some great health benefits associated with maple syrup. It contains lots of manganese and zinc which are excellent for your immune system. Zinc is particularly good for men’s health, so make this smoothie for the man in your life and keep him fighting fit! 

These smoothies are really satisfying and would make a good breakfast on their own. Or elevenses, or a meal substitute, or an afternoon drink. Or even a relaxing drink before bed. I have a secret – a banana before bed is better than any sleeping pill.
