Tropical Fruit and Pumpkin Smoothie

I absolutely love starting my day with a smoothie. Making smoothies is an easy and delicious way to start your day. Plus, they are healthy!  Smoothies are super simple to customize and adjust to your liking. I have added everything from avocados to celery to pumpkin to my smoothie creations. Pumpkin may not be the obvious choice when you are thinking of ingredients to add to your smoothie, but it actually blends really well with whatever flavors you are using.

Plus, pumpkin is really good for you. Pumpkin is loaded with fiber, so it helps keep us fuller longer and it is filled with vitamins. Check out all the health benefits of pumpkin. You may be surprised!
