I saw this and I just knew I had to make it day 2 of Skinny Beverage week. I love my Nana’s pumpkin pie. She makes the best! When I saw this  I thought it must taste great!

Ingredients:
1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree (to make your own, click here)
1 frozen banana
1/2-1 cup unsweetened almond milk, or other dairy-free milk
1 scoop unflavored (or vanilla) protein powder* – optional
2-3 TBSP agave or maple syrup, to taste
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ginger
Small pinch of cloves
Small pinch of salt
Ice – optional

For the coconut whipped cream:
1  15oz. can full fat coconut milk, chilled overnight
2-3 tsp. agave or maple syrup, or to taste – optional

Directions:
Blend all ingredients until smooth – add almond milk to thin to the consistency you want. Top with coconut whipped cream if desired… and who wouldn’t desire it? Garnish with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg, and enjoy!

For the coconut whipped cream:
Remove the well-chilled can of coconut milk from the fridge, and turn it upside down. Open the can, and pour off the coconut ‘water’ (this can be saved for later use in other recipes, or for drinking). In the bottom you’ll be left with the separated coconut fat. Spoon this out into a bowl, and whisk or beat with a mixer until smooth. Mix in a little sweetener, or some vanilla or other spices, to taste. Store any extra in the fridge and re-whip when ready to use.
