Pumpkin Pie Smoothie (Dairy-Free)

Well, my dears, it is that lovely time of year again. Everywhere we turn its Pumpkin-this and Pumpkin-that, mouth-watering yummy-ness just waiting for us to pounce. To help keep our waistlines and pocketbook in check, I came up with this favorite after-school treat.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

One 13.5 ounce can Unsweetened Organic Coconut Milk (my favorite is Native Forest)
Half of a 15 ounce can plain Organic Pumpkin (I like Farmer's Market brand)
Two 16 ounce tumblers of crushed ice
1/3 cup Real Maple Syrup (or sweetener of your choosing; sweeten to your taste)
1 heaping teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon Ground Ginger

Blend until smooth. Sip through a glass straw... Yum.
And, if you feel like changing things up a little, throw in a handful of Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips (to keep it dairy-free; if you don't have to avoid dairy, then by all means use whatever mini chips you prefer). Pumpkin and Chocolate are a match that could have only been made in Heaven.

Oh that sounds so good Beth! I don't do dairy and do use coconut milk so I will try this for sure. Thank you! Lori
