pumpkin smoothies

I'm popping in this morning to share a delicious Fall-inspired pumpkin smoothie with you.

This easy-to-make treat offers a taste of pumpkin pie in a glass . . . perfect for when you're short on time.

Like most smoothies, this Fall version is versatile, too.

You can substitute the milk base with yogurt, rice milk, or even almond milk, depending on your dietary restrictions.

And if you like your smoothies extra sweet, then add an extra Tablespoon of brown sugar. You can also substitute the brown sugar for honey, if you prefer a more natural sweetener.

I add vanilla protein powder (and a little extra milk) when I'm making one for my little ones.

And for an extra special treat, I serve it with graham crackers or cinnamon graham crackers . . . so yummy!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

  4. Who wouldn't want to start their day out like this?? Smoothies are one of our fav's. I'm making my own pumpkin puree, so I can't wait to use it in this recipe!! Thanks!
