Pumpkins, pumpkins, we love pumpkins!

The air is feeling crisp, the woodstove smell is in the air, and I'm loving the start of Autumn!  Of course, Autumn is also a great time for lots of yummy treats.  Since I am trying to stay away from those treats, I decided to figure out how to use pumpkin for good! :)

Alas, I present to you, the pumpkin smoothie!

Okay, so I'm not the first to invent something like this, but it's good, nonetheless.

Here's what I did:

I bought a pie pumpkin, but you could use canned pumpkin.  I could only find the pumpkin pie filling which is loaded with sugar, so I decided just to buy a pumpkin and cook it up.

2 cups of milk of your choice.
1/2 cup of pumpkin
1 banana
1 TBSP Agave or sweetener of your choice
1/4 cup leftover oatmeal from breakfast
1 TBSP Flax
sprinkle of cinnamon
sprinkle of ginger

Throw it all in a blender, and there you pumpkin smoothie.

I kinda wanna make another one.  I just finished my last one 2.5 minutes ago.
