I never know what to do with the extra pumpkin puree that I have lying around after recipes like this pumpkin bread. I was making my smoothie the other day and perusing my refrigerator when a light bulb went off. Why of course, pumpkin smoothies!
This smoothie is so deliciously sweet and seasonal plus you get tons of Omega-3s in the flax seeds and almond butter. A genius fall invention for sure. It’s creamy, delicious, and perfectly pumpkin-y.
-3/4 cup almond milk (or oat milk or whatever milk you prefer)
-1/4 cup organic canned pureed pumpkin

-1/8 tspn nutmeg
-1/4 tspn pure vanilla extract
