Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Remember when I told you I was adding pumpkin to everything I made?

Well, pumpkin (my pumpkin butter to be exact) has canoodled its way into another of my breakfast recipes with this Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. A delicious pumpkin flavored smoothie with the rich spices of Fall from pumpkin butter and apple cider.

Mix this yummy concoction with some frozen bananas and coconut milk and you've got yourself a quick, healthy, and tasty breakfast for those days you don't have time to fix yourself something to eat before leaving the house.

Or you can have it as a snack when those hunger pangs start in the middle of your day.

No matter what time of day you make it, it will give you a little pick me up to get you through to your next meal.
