I might not be the big pumpkin spice latte fanatic that most people are, but I still love my pumpkin spice. Whether it’s pumpkin pie, pumpkin tea, pumpkin spice ice cream or pumpkin spice cookies, it’s right about now that I kick off the obsession.

This simple and healthy paleo smoothie is my go-to when I need to get my pumpkin spice fix!

What I really happen to love is when I can make my pumpkin spice fixes a little healthier and less indulgent. I mean, let’s face it, the holidays are always a time where you gain a few pounds. No matter how disciplined you are or how much you want to stay on track, all the holiday drinks, baking and other treats are too irresistible.

You have to indulge every once in a while anyways, right? The holidays just happen to be the most fun time to do it. At least in my opinion it is.

So instead of always reaching for a cookie, it’s nice to reach for this rich, delicious smoothie that is deceptive in how healthy it is.

The season for pumpkin spice is all too short, so I have to pack it into every possible mouthful I can. My recent favorite is kicking off my morning with a pumpkin spice smoothie. Instead of relying on caffeine to get the pumpkin spice fix, I get a little pep in my step from this delicious all natural breakfast drink.

Especially if you get the really good pumpkin puree from your favorite store… You all know what I’m talking about.

The banana keeps you going throughout the day, the almond milk keeps your body strong and the pumpkin flavor will totally knock your socks off. It’s basically just like drinking pumpkin pie. It doesn’t get much more fall than that, does it?

As the temperatures begin to dip and the tree leaves begin to turn color, you’ll find yourself reaching for this smoothie again and again. All you have to do is strap on your oversized sweater, your favorite pair of boots and fill a travel cup full of this bad boy to make your day the best fall day ever. I can literally hear the crunching of those crisp leaves as I walk through the park already.

There’s only a couple of months total for you to really get into the fall and pumpkin spirit, so get a move on already! Pumpkin spice season is here.

  1. This was so good, I didn’t know if my kids would like it since there was no added sugar, but they drank it all up! It was plenty sweet with just the banana to sweeten it. Next time I’m going to double the recipe so there’s some left for me ☺
