It isn’t even October yet and already I have consumed several pounds of pumpkin! I seriously want to put pumpkin on and in everything right now. Probably my most favorite way to enjoy pumpkin is in smoothies. I like to get creative and play around with adding in different things, sometimes I add in spinach or maybe some protein powder, other times I like to just play around with different spices. With this smoothie I altered the spice mix a bit to mimic the lovely spice combinations in a good chai tea. One of my favorite flavor profiles. The beauty of this smoothie is that you can add in more of the spices you like (or others not listed) or take away any of the spices you don’t care for. You can truly make it your own.
This smoothie is great as a filling healthy breakfast, but it would also be delicious as dessert, with some whipped coconut cream on top. I am sharing this Pumpkin Chai Smoothie recipe today on Recipes to Nourish so head over there for the full recipe plus I am even sharing some quick notes on a few of the many, lovely health benefits of pumpkin!
