What to do with leftover pumpkin? So many recipes call for part of a can of pumpkin, but what do you do with the rest? We tried our hand at pumpkin smoothies. We were having such a good time that we forgot to take a picture :-/. You’ll just have to imagine it. Or, you can click on the original recipe below and imagine what it would look like if it just had the pumpkin part without any of the whipped cream. This is quite a hearty smoothie. Happy Holidays to you!
2/3 c. pumpkin puree (Refrigerate first to make your drink colder.)
1 banana (Can use a frozen one to make the drink colder.)
1/3 c. walnuts
3/4 tsp cinnamon
scant 1/8 tsp ginger
scant 1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
3/4 c. unsweetened cashew milk (coconut milk may be even better)
3 T. maple syrup
2 tsp molasses
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Enjoy! This made plenty for two people.
