This Pumpkin Banana Bread Smoothie is thick and creamy and actually tastes like banana bread! The not so secret ingredient? FIGS!It’s thick, creamy and tastes shockingly similar to banana bread. One sip and you’ll question whether or not you made a smoothie or blended up a bunch of banana bread. It’s the perfect quick morning treat for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any day you feel like having a smoothie that tastes like banana bread.

The story of this smoothie goes like this. One fall morning I decided to make a pumpkin smoothie for Ken. I usually make him kale smoothies but on this particular morning I wanted to make a pumpkin smoothie for him. I gathered ingredients that would work well in a pumpkin smoothie – pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, vanilla extract, almond milk, coconut sugar. Then I grabbed some frozen figs and bananas. All of those ingredients went into the blender and BRRRRRRRRHRHHHEHEHHRRRR. I turned the blender on and it made that loud noise for what seemed like many seconds and then voila. A smoothie that was supposed to taste like pumpkin but ended up tasting like banana bread was born.

A few days later I decided to make this smoothie again, carefully measuring the ingredients so I could share the recipe with you. Once again, banana bread tasting smoothie perfection. ♥︎
