Pumpkin Nog Smoothie

Using a blend of dairy-free pumpkin eggnog, frozen bananas, and flaxseed, this Pumpkin Nog Smoothie is as tasty as it is healthy!  Who says smoothies have to be boring?

Using a blend of dairy-free pumpkin eggnog, frozen bananas, and flaxseed, this Pumpkin Nog Smoothie is as tasty as it is healthy!  Who says smoothies have to be boring? #smoothie #pumpkin #smoovember

I’m an eggnog fanatic.  Once the holiday season hits and I spot it in the dairy case, eggnog is pretty much all I can think about.  Seriously, I could go through a gallon of the stuff every week completely on my own.  But then my jeans wouldn’t button, and I’d have a completely new set of problems.

So, the last few years, I’ve been making a dairy-free, lightened-up version…one that’s become my all-time favorite seasonal drink {no joke}.  It uses light vanilla soy milk {you may also use almond milk}, dry pudding mix, pumpkin puree, and lots of seasonal spices:

Lightened Up White Chocolate Pumpkin Nog #recipe #beverages www.kitchenmeetsgirl.com

You can get the recipe here.

I’ve already made it twice so far this season, with no chance of stopping anytime soon.

Doodle has been obsessed with smoothie-making lately, and my old blender hasn’t really been keeping up – trying to blend even one frozen banana in it is just an effort in futility.  So when I saw that Hamilton Beach had a new smoothie-maker out, I knew I had to get my hands on one.

The Smoothie Smart™ Blender prepares a perfect smoothie with the press of a button: Auto Smoothie. This 45-second smart blending cycle is programmed with the precise pulses and speeds needed to get the right consistency.  So in my case, no removing the blender lid, stirring, cursing, and repeating.

At the end of the cycle, the blender shuts off automatically.  Cool, right??

Using a blend of dairy-free pumpkin eggnog, frozen bananas, and flaxseed, this Pumpkin Nog Smoothie is as tasty as it is healthy!  Who says smoothies have to be boring? #smoothie #pumpkin #smoovember

Not only that, but it has a special “pour-spout” that makes serving a breeze – and mess free.  If you’ve ever lived with a 6-year old who wants to pour his own drink – well, you know how important this is. ;-)

And while my favorite faux-nog is super yummy all on it’s own, it’s even better used in a healthy smoothie: combined with frozen bananas and a bit of ground flax seed.  The flax seed is optional, but you really can’t taste it, and it is a great way to get some Omega-3 and extra fiber into your diet.

Using a blend of dairy-free pumpkin eggnog, frozen bananas, and flaxseed, this Pumpkin Nog Smoothie is as tasty as it is healthy!  Who says smoothies have to be boring? #smoothie #pumpkin #smoovember

Give this smoothie a try and go guilt-free during the holiday season!

And guess what? Hamilton Beach wants to give one of YOU one of their new SmoothieSmart Blenders (believe me, you want one of these bad boys) AND one of their Single Serve Blenders.

The Single Serve Blender is sized to fit most cup holders, so you can easily make a smoothie for on-the-go!  Even better, you can place the cup or blending jar right in the dishwasher when you’re done.

Easy clean-up = thumbs-up.
