Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

I don’t know about you but I’m diehard pumpkin spice fan… Except I don’t do toxic ingredients or tons of sugar.

That’s why I’m sharing my Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie recipe.  This pumpkin smoothie is delicious and I love drinking this even in the summer when I’m channeling fall sweater weather.

Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

This healthy pumpkin smoothie is:

  • Full of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, which will help keep you feeling full and energized throughout the day.
  • It’s low in sugar, too.
  • The fresh pumpkin puree and spices add rich chemical-free pumpkin flavor and Vitamins A and C.
  • The best part?  This smoothie’s second all-star ingredient is collagen… which helps your gut health, joints, hair, nails and skin.  The pumpkin puree’s Vitamin C helps your body absorb collagen better, too!

Remember to opt for organic ingredients, especially that canned pumpkin purée!  Here’s the brand I use…  I love it because the can is BPA free.
