Its my favorite time of year and time to go crazy with pumpkin. I actually dug out my last quart of frozen pumpkin from last year and have been playing around with it. I decided to start with a smoothie.

1 Cup Pumpkin Mashed or Canned
1 Frozen Banana
3/4 Cup Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Splenda
1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/3 Cup Cool whip or Yogurt

Place it all in a blender and turn it on high for abut 2 minutes. Serve in a tall glass with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
