Ok ok so I’ve already told you my obsession with the fall, and apples, and pumpkin everything. So today I’m going to share with you a healthy smoothie the whole family will love. You will love the fact that it is super healthy and your kids will have no idea muhahah…
Pumpkin is a super food. It is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, antioxidants, and fiber. They can also improve your immune functions, act as a anti-inflammatory, and help reduce the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and premature aging. So I try to sneak pumpkin into my diet. That also means eating pumpkin pie is good for you right? Kidding kind of. We all need a little justification in our lives.
Pumpkin Apple Pie Smoothie
- 1 cup milk of choice (whole milk, full fat coconut milk, almond, etc)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 apple (cored and chopped)
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
