To make the smoothie, add milk, and yogurt to a blender. Drop in the frozen pumpkin pie filling and blend until the frozen filling is completely pulverized. Add more milk or yogurt as needed to get it the consistency you’d like.

Pour into individual glasses and sprinkle the tops with graham cracker crumbs. Serve immediately!
