Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

DSC05144I was trying to determine what to do with the leftover fresh pumpkin puree I had on hand from over the weekend, when I came across this recipe. I’d never tried a pumpkin spice smoothie before, and this one sounded heavenly—a mix of pumpkin puree, a banana, a bit of maple syrup, almond milk, and a mix of fall spices. The resulting smoothie was creamy with warm, fall flavors. I could have easily enjoyed the whole batch myself, but I shared. Next time, maybe not. This smoothie is perfect for breakfast, a snack, dessert, really anytime of the day. And it’s so easy.
