I LOVE smoothies.  Like, seriously and truly, really love them.  I actually make a smoothie every day and usually have it post workout or as a late breakfast.  I love playing with flavor combos too and seeing what works and what tastes good all while trying to keep it nutritious and healthy.  So when I was asked to team up with Puritan’s Pride the next three months to feature seasonal smoothies obviously my answer was a big fat YES! Puritan's Pride Seasonal Smoothie

 For the month of October I felt it was only appropriate to make a pumpkin smoothie! Pumpkins have ton of health benefits that you may not know about.  They are chock full of vitamin A which boosts immunity and aids in eye health.  They are also high in potassium which is great for refueling after a hard workout and they’re high in fiber! The pumpkin seeds even boast a variety of health benefits and can reduce cholesterol and even boost your mood! Woohoo! 😀 

Even though pumpkin is a superfood by itself, I took this smoothie to the next level by adding cacao powder, the superior greens- which taste pretty awesome by the way, protein powder and my secret ingredient; pumpkin. spice. tea.  Heck yeah! (How many grammar felonies did I commit in that sentence? Don’t know.  Don’t care). Plus I topped it with some pumpkin seeds, aka pepitas, and cacao nibs for some extra crunchy superfood goodness. Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Superfood Smoothie #SeasonalSmoothieChocolate Pumpkin Spice Superfood Smoothie #SeasonalSmoothie

You could even add the Barney Almond Butter in there for added creaminess and exchange the cacao powder for carob powder which makes a great substitute if you’re sensitive to cocoa/cacao.
