Pumpkin Spice Smoothies

Vintage Pumpkins

Mmmm! Now that fall is here*, I’m totally jonesin’ for a homemade Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. They’re super simple to make, and incredibly delicious. Check it out:

1 cup of milk (I use unsweetened soymilk)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Dash of ground nutmeg
Dash of ground cloves
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (just regular ol’ pumpkin, not the pumpkin pie filling)

I usually just combine everything in the blender, blend until creamy, and call it good, but if you want to sweeten it up a bit, a tablespoon of maple syrup or honey will do the trick.

When you’re done blending, pour in a glass and enjoy a little taste of autumn spice goodness.

* Well, unofficially, but it’s close enough for me, especially since the weather has been cool and dreary all week.
