The Best Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

With autumn making its entrance, you will definitely start to see pumpkin gracing porches, storefronts and stocked on countless grocery store shelves.

Pumpkin is a member of the winter squash family (Cucurbitaceae),  is native to North America and is an essential part to Halloween jack o’lanterns and Thanksgiving pumpkin pies. Pumpkin is also considered a fruit because it contains seeds but is more closely related to veggies due to its high nutrient content.

Some of pumpkin’s nutrition highlights include …

  • Vitamin A
    • Essential for healthy eyes
  • Vitamin C
    • Supports the immune system
  • Potassium
    • Muscle function
    • Hydration
    • Supports healthy blood pressure

Pumpkin is also a great addition to a festive fall smoothie, giving it a super creamy texture while adding fiber, vitamins, minerals and a really delicious flavor.
