What do you do when it’s fall but still 90 degrees outside?

Make a pumpkin smoothie!

In an effort to enjoy some fall flavors without overheating, I’ve been turning everything from squash to apples to pumpkin into frozen treats. Though I’d love a hot Pumpkin Spice Latte one of these days, it’s been a pretty delicious fall so far.

This particular Pumpkin Pie Smoothie came about when I was in a rush to get out the door and hadn’t yet had breakfast. I wanted something that would sustain me for a few hours, but I didn’t have my staple smoothie ingredients on-hand. I didn’t expect that just four ingredients – one of which is my favorite real protein drink: Organic Balance – would lead to such a tasty smoothie!

Since then, I’ve also made this smoothie with 1 Tbsp chia seeds – which is even more nutritious and adds a great smooth texture.

If the weather has cooled off where you are, make this smoothie alongside a warm cup of tea and cuddle up with a blanket. (And send some of your weather my way please…that sounds so cozy!)

    Hi there!
    This book blogger thinks this sounds DELICIOUS!! Mmmmm!!!!
    I don’t understand what the chunks of Mango would do??? Does it thin the pumpkin out? Please explain to this person who is NOT the greatest cook in the world! LOL!
    Thanks so much!!

      Hi Laurie! The mango just adds some additional sweetness, creaminess and tang. I made it once without the mango too, and although I liked it, I thought most people would like it a little sweeter and creamier. You can’t really taste the mango – it still tastes very pumpkin-y 😉

    This sounds crazy good. I haven’t seen these protein shakes yet but will definitely keep an eye out for them!

      They have them in most grocery stores these days, but definitely Whole Foods!
