It’s officially fall… YAY!

If you love thick, creamy, and healthy smoothies, and pumpkin, then this pumpkin smoothie recipe is for you! It tastes like your mom’s pumpkin pie, only colder, and in a glass ツ
I’ve been playing around with this recipe for awhile now and finally feel like I nailed it. It’s got a great combination of sweet, savory and exotic flavors. The coconut milk is a great, creamy base, the banana gives it a thickness, the egg yolk provides protein and extra umami and the pecans give it that nutty, homemade pumpkin pie taste. Finally, in this pumpkin smoothie, the added spices and maple syrup let the true pumpkin flavor shine!

Here’s a quick video tutorial

Here’s the recipe for an individual meal or two snack-sized portions.
