This smoothie filled with pumpkin flavor is a lovely snack / drink in the Fall. The smoothie is a cinch to prepare and contains only a small handful of ingredients to remind us of some of the reasons why we love the season of Autumn! The pumpkin flavor, the orange colors everywhere, the cooler weather, etc. Fall is probably my favorite season of all, and this pumpkin smoothie will definitely be a staple for me in future years, as well.
Bonus: My kids loved this smoothie. I’m always happy when they will consume something fairly healthy, and this smoothie is definitely a healthy one!
You might be thinking… pumpkin & blueberry? Really? Do those go together? Well, yes, they do. You have to try the combination- it tastes much better than you might first imagine.
