Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

 

Whether you are getting ready to go trick-or-treating, recovering from a post-Halloween candy binge, heading out to pick some apples, or just setting off on a good ol’ fashioned leaf-peeping hike, there is no better way to satiate your pumpkin cravings and to get a healthy boost than this fall-inspired Pumpkin Spice Smoothie recipe.

The pumpkin and spice flavors blend perfectly with the sweet potato, carrots, and ginger flavors of the Clementine Super Smoothie. Pumpkin seeds — or pepitas — are already included in our pre-mixed frozen smoothie packet; they are a good source for magnesium — a nutrient lacking in most American diets[1] — protein, antioxidants, and fiber. [2][3][4]

The addition of pumpkin purée also has its own health benefits, as the beta-carotene in the plant converts to Vitamin A in the body.

Tip: For a treat nearly as good as the “PSL” at your nearby coffee shop — and far more nutritious — add some cold brew coffee to this recipe for an extra kick that is anything but basic.
