Halloween Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

For my second Halloween recipe of the week, I am so excited to share with you all a recipe that I created for the University of Exeter Veggie Society websiteThe Halloween Pumpkin Smoothie.

I absolutely loved creating this recipe as it involved one of my all time favourite Halloween activities – pumpkin carving! Despite creating this recipe a week before Halloween, I got waaaay into the halloween spirit and put my cat ears on which I absolutely love by the way (you can purchase these from New Look here).

So once you’ve finished carving your pumpkin, this yummy 2 layered smoothie is a great way to make use of the stringy innards of the pumpkin that normally get thrown away. I hope you enjoy this autumnal recipe as much as I do. Let me know in the comments below if you have any creative ways that you like to make use of your leftover pumpkin goo!

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 2 table spoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 /2 an apple
  • 1 tea spoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. For the first layer of the smoothie: place 2 bananas, the stringy innards of the pumpkin, 1 table spoon of maple syrup, 1/2 cup of water and 1 tea spoon of cinnamon into the blender and blend until smooth (this usually takes around 30 seconds in mine).
  2. Pour into your smoothie jar and leave to stand.
  3. For the second layer of the smoothie: place 1 banana, 1/2 an apple, 1 table spoon of maple syrup and 1/2 cup of water into the blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the second layer of smoothie on top of the first in your smoothie jar.
  5. Enjoy your Halloween Pumpkin Smoothie!
