Guilt-Free Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

It looks like Cathy and I think way too much alike. We’ve both gone a little crazy with pumpkin this month, and we have declared October to officially be Pumpkin Month. This year it’s especially important for me to have a lot of orange in my life, as it is, after all, an #OrangeOctober. For those of you who don’t follow sports, the SF Giants have made it to the World Series, and their tagline is Orange October. Last week I watched all the games, had some crazy nights cheering at Finnerty’s, the San Francisco bar here in New York, and they did it! And I’m actually GOING to the World Series next weekend in SF! So drink up friends, and brace yourself for this Orange October.

This smoothie is one of my favorite fall breakfast treats. It is deceivingly healthy even though it tastes deliciously like pumpkin pie. It is protein-packed and the pumpkin adds a healthy boost of carotenes. The key ingredient is definitely the pumpkin pie spice, which adds a blast of flavor. I will probably be drinking one every day of this World Series. Go Giants!
