I’ve never been struck by pumpkin fever like everybody else during the fall. I suppose having crappy pumpkin pie as a kid (read: not vegan, all processed) turned me off to all things pumpkin. This year I rediscovered the magic of pumpkin through many different preparations and was intrigued by the concept of making a pumpkin smoothie for breakfast. I drink smoothies 3-4 times a week as my first meal of the day and the nutritional value of pumpkins made this an easy choice to mix up my repertoire. It might seem weird to add salt to a smoothie but it’s key in bringing out the rest of the flavors, trust me.

A picture, a picture! Your blog is getting all kinds of grown up. Love it! Make me one sometime, okay??
Great smoothie recipe! I like the flavor of pumpkin in a smoothie because I'm not a big fan of super-sweet smoothies. I'll try this!
I am definitely going to try this. Sounds delicious.
This sounds great! Glad you finally posted a recipe for it after tempting us on Twitter so many times! I recently tried a persimmon & frozen apricot smoothie and it was really lovely.
I make this with So Delicious coconut milk and yogurt, and it's sooo good! Great idea to refrigerate the pumpkin first. It's kind of a no-brainer, but one I managed to overlook. (Thus the anonymous comment posting!) 🙂
Yummers, I'm so going to try this!!
