Sometimes I get into a smoothie rut. Okay, maybe most of the time. So, it's really nice to switch it up every once in a while. What better way to switch things up than by taking inspiration from the seasons?
When everything and everyone is screaming Autumn, embrace it with a pumpkin smoothie.
This smoothie was super good and flavourful. The banana mellows out the pumpkin flavour a tad so if you're a bit wary of full pumpkin potency you may be alright, but have a pumpkin fan on speed dial just in case ;)
