A pumpkin spice smoothie that is actually good for you! Lets face it, most pumpkin flavored smoothies are really just glorified milk shakes, jam packed with sugar and artificial flavors. This smoothie is the real deal. High in potassium and beta carotene, with the addition of a homemade spice blend, it’s the perfect way to feed your pumpkin spice habit while nourishing your body.
