Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

by Rachel on November 10, 2012

Did I say that pumpkin oatmeal was one of my favorite fall breakfasts?  Well technically it still is but this smoothie is ammmaaazzzing.  I wish I could give you one right now because you wouldn’t believe me when I tell you it’s 100% (1000%) healthy.  It’s like a pumpkin milkshake.  It’s like magic.

When I drink smoothies for breakfast I usually cook up a couple of boiled eggs to eat on the side for some added protein staying power.  Some mornings I’m too cold for smoothie drinking but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying one later in the day for dessert.

After you’ve made it once and fallen in love try adding a one or two handfuls of baby spinach next time for an even bigger nutrient boost.  Don’t be scared – you won’t even taste it!  Vegetables for dessert – you’re welcome.

 Does pumpkin season officially end after Thanksgiving or do enjoy pumpkin year round?

I think I am the only one on the planet who does not like pumpkin!

I think you’re right – maybe you should seek the advice of a doctor because it’s just not right! haha :)

That pumpkin smoothie looks so delicious! I’ve recently bought a Kenwood blender, the K-Mix, and since then I’m quite addicted to smoothies. Will try your recipe for sure! Never tasted a smoothie made out of pumpkins before, but this one looks so good, I’m sure I’ll love it!
