If you order iced coffee all year, we’d get along. I don’t care if it’s 100℉ or 10℉, I like my drinks cold. That means I enjoy smoothies all year, too. I don’t get sick of them, nor does the temperature bother me. Plus, I have so many smoothie recipes that I need a whole year to enjoy them all!
Just because the temperature of my drinks doesn’t change, doesn’t mean the flavors don’t. As soon as fall hits, I blend up my Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. There’s no pumpkin spice recipe that compares, not even the beloved latte. Yes, I said it!
With National Pumpkin Spice Day around the corner (October 1st!) I thought it was only fitting for me to share one of my fall favorite smoothie recipes. It’s pumpkin-y and full of fall spices, without being overpowering. One sip of my Pumpkin Spice Smoothie, and you’ll be hooked!
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Health Benefits
Smoothies are just healthy milkshakes, right? I would say so, and this pumpkin spice recipe is no exception. There are a few main ingredients in this recipe that make it so healthy. In my opinion, all great smoothie recipes include bananas. They’re a great source of potassium, they add a great texture to the smoothie, and they can aid in digestion.  The most important base ingredient in this recipe is, of course, pumpkin! This seasonal vegetable is a great source of vitamins A and C. These vitamins can help boost immune function, and help reduce inflammation in the body.  Plus, it’s delicious. Next up, my favorite spice of all time — cinnamon! Cinnamon is a delicious addition to any smoothie, but it also comes with a list of benefits. It can help balance blood sugar and acts as an antioxidant.  Feel free to measure the cinnamon with your heart!
Last but not least is Unflavored Super Youth collagen. Collagen is a must-have ingredient. First, it goes completely undetected because it doesn’t taste like anything. Next, it’s incredible for our gut, skin, and joints. [4, 5] I add collagen to just about every recipe I make, and for good reason.
