I make smoothies a lot. Most are quick and plain, just to feed my body some nutrients. But sometimes I like to add a little touch of season into them. Like these Pumpkin Apple Smoothie Cups.
I have been experimenting with pumpkin this year more than before, and thought it was a must to try them in a smoothie – turned out great! They’re filled with fall-inspired ingredients. Crunchy bits of apples and cinnamon, with a some pecans. They make a great breakfast, or light dessert.
Hope you give this recipe a try. I’m sure you will enjoy it! If you do, I would love to see your recreation and learn how it went. Leave me a comment here and tag me in your photos on Instagram/Facebook/TikTok @demeals.ca #demeals
