Cinnamony Pumpkin Smoothie

I have found that my drinks section is languishing.So I have decided to post some drinks be it smoothies,shakes or whatever in between.The pumpkin smoothie is a simple recipe that I put together in a jiffy.I had roasted pumpkin and was waiting for a good day or a unusually strong working mood which will shake me to make a pumpkin pie.Unfortunately or fortunately, a small trip came in between and I was sre after coming back the pumpkin will surely go bad despite my freezing (well due to the 'current' situation) and I simply made a breakfast smoothie with the roasted pumpkin and other may go bad items like flaxmeal and dairy.

Roasted Pumpkin puree: 3/4 cup
Low fat Yogurt/curd: 1/2 cup
Milk: 1/4 cup
Flax meal/ powdered flax seeds: 1 tbsp
Cinnamon Powder
Vanilla Extract: 1/2 tsp (optional)
Sugar/Honey/Sweetner of choice: as per taste

Blend all the ingredients in a blender/process and serve.You can optionally top this with more cinnamon or choco chips. The estimate gives on tall glass or 2-3 small glasses.

I have added the healthy flax meal which I had made for some other purpose and have used my favourite spice cinnamon in this.You can add even pumpkin pie spice to this and can add more milk or yoghurt as per taste.The drink was hearty and thick and tasty for me.

Update on 22.03.10 - The salad also goes to the Serve Me some Juices,shakes and Smoothies at CookCurryNook
