Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Oh heavenly orange squash that marks the first day of Fall, how I’ve missed your versatility.

Pumpkins are filled with complex carbohydrates, fiber, anti-oxidants, and vitamin A… but I’ve been avoiding them.

I blame it on end-of-summer-denial syndrome. Yes, it’s something many of us struggle with *tear*

But in an effort to keep up with the times, I’ve packed up the patio furniture, changed out my closet, and bought me some pumpkin.

Fall, I’m ready for you.

This week…

I’ve enjoyed my fair share of pumpkin pie quinoa breakfast bake (for dinner),

filled my afternoon with slivers of pumpkin raspberry buckwheat bakes,

and sipped on pumpkin spice smoothies while catching up on my emails in the morning.

Oh yessss….

Sweetness - this smoothie is not overly sweet. If you would like to sweeten, add maple syrup instead of the raisins. Or use sweetened non-dairy milk.

I have 10 cans of pumpkin to get through and could really use your help. I’m such a sucker for a good sale.
