Here’s an easy way to enjoy the tastes of the season!

I put Alexander’s into a reusable food pouch, from ReSqueeze.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie


PUMPKIN SPICE SMOOTHIE
Makes 1 adult and 1 baby smoothie; Good 6 months and up

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk of choice (or 1/2 milk, 1/2 water)
  • 1 frozen banana (you don’t have a frozen banana? Use a fresh banana + 2-3 ice cubes)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • a pinch each of ground ginger and ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Put everything (see step 3 if your baby is under 9 months!) into a blender or food processor.
  2. Puree until smooth. 
  3. If your baby is younger than 9 months, I would start with less liquid and make a thicker smoothie. That way, baby can eat it with a preloaded spoon. If your baby is older, you can add the amount of liquid mentioned, and it will be drinkable/pourable.
  4. Pour the mixture into a food pouch or cup with a straw.

NOTES. Make this ahead and pop it into the freezer. It takes a little while to thaw, FYI! You can also pour the mixture into ice pop molds and serve little ice pops later.

    do you used canned pumpkin puree or make your own? if you used canned, any brand you recommend? 🙂

      I didn’t make my own purée 🙂 I have tried 3 different brands (Kroger store brand, the organic from sprouts, and the organic from trader joes), and they’re indistinguishable! Get what you can find!
