Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe

With only a few ingredients, most you may even have on hand, you can turn all your pumpkin spice dreams into a delicious pumpkin smoothie recipe that is healthy for you, filling, perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Is pumpkin healthy for you?

Yes, pumpkin is healthy for you!  Pumpkin is a vegetable, specifically a squash and is good for so many things including a pumpkin smoothie.

Pumpkin is nutrient-rich, vitamin-rich, mineral-rich but low in calories.  Pumpkin has potassium, antioxidants, beta-carotene and fiber.

Seriously, I don’t know why we don’t eat more pumpkin!

Fresh pumpkin will obviously give you the best nutritional benefits, but sometimes grabbing a can of pumpkin puree is really convenient.

However, check the ingredients on your pumpkin puree can as sometimes sugars of syrups are added.

There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies and milkshakes, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best.  I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies and this is also perfect for some milkshake if you want everything blended together well!  You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.
