healthy pumpkin spice smoothie recipe. perfect for fall!Here we are again, straddling the seasons. One foot is pressed firmly on the summer side—with temps still in the high 80s in my neck of the woods—and the other foot is situated squarely on the side of fall, with kids back in school and riding boots on the covers of catalogs.

I find myself asking the question I always do during this in-between stage: What should I eat?

Well, today I have an answer.

For that wishy-washy day when the heat has you craving something refreshing but the date on the calendar has you yearning for something autumnal, I give you the Healthy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie.

    Ooo, I have most of those ingredients on hand. I’ll just have to substitute cinnamon for the pumpkin pie spice and give it a whirl!

      I’m sure that would work out just fine! Do you also have some nutmeg and/or cloves? Add a pinch of those too!

    When we lived in WI, Labor Day weekend really felt like the start of fall. In FL, not so much. As glad as I am not to have to go through a cold, snowy winter, it’s going to be tough to get used to not having “fall” weather until December.

      That would feel very odd to me as well, but come January or February I’d be loving it!

    Girl, you KNOW pumpkin is everything to me. I’ve already been enjoying pumpkin baked goods, pumpkin lattes, and pumpkin coffee. It may be hot out but pumpkin is a year round thing for me! I MUST make this soon.

    This looks so yummy! I cook with pumpkin (muffins, oatmeal, etc) all year round, but I agree it’s still way too hot outside for pumpkin coffee.

    Yes! I totally love pumpkin spice in everything. And really only in the fall. Year round, less so.
    Although I got a pumpkin spice latte in February this year and it was kinda nice!
    This recipe is getting PINNED! Or rather Ahalogy-ed. Still have you to thank for talking me into taking that class with you.

    Thank you for sharing! I’ve been craving pumpkin, but don’t want to buy it until it goes on sale.

    When it does, I will be making and freezing these en masse.http://detoxinista.com/2012/09/grain-free-pumpkin-bars/

    And seasons? Well, tourist season is done and rainy-windy season is holding off a bit. I’m soaking in quiet beach time with blue skies. It’s glorious!

    Ah! I’m so excited to see this! I am a super-crazed pumpkin fan. I broke out my pumpkin candles in hopes it will feel more like fall– even though it’s still I’m the 90s outside. Definitely pinning and making this!

    Well, the seasons have been reluctant to change here in MD but I am ready for fall. 😉 It’s my favorite season. This recipe sounds awesome! I love pumpkin lattes, pumpkin creamer, etc. so I definitely be giving this a try!

    I’ve been drooling over this for a few days after seeing it in my BlogLovin’ feed, and I finally got here to check it out. YUM. I love pumpkin flavored stuff, but the syrups in coffee drinks are full of sugar. This is healthy – yay!

    Pumpkin all the way, all the time! This smoothie looks amazing. I’m pinning it for later. I could have it year round though, sometimes I’ll go crazy and make some pumpkin pie in the summer.

    Well I think I deserve a trip to the Commissary to buy the ingredients and make this smoothie 🙂

    Between all the baking I love to do on fall, and all the recipes I had being hoarding in Pinterest I will gain 80 pounds by December….
