pumpkin smoothie.





Aren't so many smoothie recipes super summer-y? Smoothies such as pineapple mango, blueberry peach, strawberry banana, the list goes on. Don't get me wrong- I love all those yummy flavors but it's September (aka FALL) so it is time for some fall smoothies!

So, here is a super quick and easy fall smoothie recipe. And it is perfect for using up that can of pumpkin puree that's leftover from that pumpkin dessert you just made!

  3. I haven't had a pumpkin smoothie that I can think of, but I can't wait to try this one! Pumpkin pie is a favorite at our house, so making that into breakfast sounds pretty awesome.
