Pumpkin Chai Smoothie
Fall is in full swing and I’m not drinking a smoothie every morning these days. It’s just way too chilly here in Seattle to be tossing frozen cherries and pineapple to my breakfast. But a great way to get around that is by using seasonal produce and using spices to “warm” up your smoothies. That’s when pumpkin and warming spices save the day!
Benefits of Pumpkin
Pumpkin is actually so good for you — it’s one of those few foods that are both healthy and delicious without much work. Did you know that pumpkin is known to be good for your vision, helps lower blood pressure, helps protect your heart, great for sleep, and leaves you feeling full much longer? There are so many other great benefits of pumpkin but these are just a few reasons I love making this pumpkin chai smoothie.
