There is no denying we are in full pumpkin mode since it’s officially feeling like fall here in Indiana - and I am not complaining! There is something about the crisp fall air that makes you want pumpkin and apple everything. That is why I spiced up my usual morning smoothie to make it a perfect match for fall!
The greatest thing about this smoothie is that you can indulge in the pumpkin without the guilt, plus get some added health benefits!
Pumpkin packs a powerful nutrient-dense punch! In just one cup, pumpkin can fuel your body with TWICE the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, fiber (to help keep you full longer), and antioxidants with cancer fighting elements.

I have been experimenting with almond milk, and have found my favorite in New Barn. Their unsweetened almond milk is clean, organic, and made with simple, quality ingredients. Plus, it tastes delicious.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides have become a smoothie staple for me. For the past 3-4 months I have added collagen to my morning smoothies. Collagen provides a healthy vitamin boost you need to support your hair, skin, nails, bone and joint health, digestion, muscle recovery, and so much more.
Since adding Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to my smoothies and water, I have noticed the greatest change in my hair, nails, and more than anything - my acne-prone skin. Just 2 scoops of this powder has helped my skin recover from years of acne and acne scarring. It's a blessing in a bottle.
This collagen powder is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, Whole30 Approved, and paleo friendly. It easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids, and is tasteless and odorless.
This is where my protein punch comes from with 18g of protein in 1 serving!
Mix it all up! (I love my Nutri-Bullet!)
Sip & Enjoy! Who says healthy can’t taste delicious?!
