Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

My favorite time of year is finally here! I don’t know about y’all, but the fall season is my absolute favorite time of year. The days begin cool down, the trees begin to change colors, and the air just has that crisp feeling that is so amazing. One of my favorite parts of fall is all things pumpkin come out to play. From coffee drinks, to pies, to waffles and pancakes, pumpkin has become a staple for fall cooking. One of my my go-to recipes during the fall is a pumpkin spice smoothie. It’s great as a quick and easy breakfast or snack. I also love that you can add in some additional ingredients to add in some extra nutrients like chia seeds or you could even add in protein powder for a post-workout smoothie.

Ingredients

1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree

1/2 Ripe Banana

1 Cup Skim Milk or Almond Milk

1 Tablespoon Honey

1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/2- 1 Cup Ice

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I like to add about 1 teaspoon of chia seeds for extra nutrients like Omega-3, protein, and fiber.
