With pumpkin purée, bananas, vanilla yoghurt, honey, and the warm pumpkin pie spice, this smoothie tastes just like the famous pie - even with the graham cracker crumbs. You can serve it as is, which is how I like to serve it, or you can add some whipped cream on top, and give it a light dusting of cinnamon, for the extra comfy feel.

300 grams pumpkin puree
200 grams ripe bananas
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
300 grams vanilla yoghurt
2 tablespoons thick honey
4 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs

Place the pumpkin purée in the blender, along with ripe bananas, and the spices, then blend on high until the spices are completely dissolved, about a minute. Stop the blender and add the yoghurt, then blend again until frothy and smooth. Finally, add in the honey and graham cracker crumbs, and blend one more time, until the cookie crumbs dissolve. Serve it well chilled. Yields 4 servings.
