How to Make a Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkins are good for other treats, but most of us only make pumpkin pies from them. For a change try making an altogether different concoction. This mild but sweet beverage will give you another reason to love the Halloween season.


  • 1 Sugar pumpkin
  • 2 cups Milk or cream
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1-3 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 apple slices
  • 20 banana slices
  • Chocolate syrup (optional)
  • Rum (optional)

    Bake. Cut the pump in half, bake with sliced sides down in a shallow pan at 375 degrees for 1.5 hours, or microwave on high for 7 minutes per pound. You can also cut up into cubes and boil - this makes it unnecessary to peel a raw pumpkin - a very difficult process.
