Spiced Pumpkin Smoothie

Why not. We’ve got pumpkin muffins, lattes, cookies, breads, chia puddings and oatmeal so let’s add pumpkin to your breakfast smoothie. It’s like drinking pumpkin pie. Which is a good thing. Sweetened with dates so there is no added sugar, this beta carotene-rich smoothie is a nice seasonal flavor change from those summer berry smoothies. I found this recipe in a beautifully photographed blog, Once Upon a Pumpkin.
