Ultimate Fall Smoothie: Pumpkin pie edition

It's officially fall! So so officially. As with any weather change time in Toronto, I am constantly confused about what I should be wearing. On the day these photos were taken, I ended up on one of my fave cafe patios (Moonbean in kensington) lounging in a tank top. The next day I lost feeling in my hands and feet because it was so cold and had to huddle around a cup of tea at said cafe to regain sensation! I'm trying to bike everywhere as well, which adds to the challenge. My hands have aged ten years from the cold!

One of the things I love love love about fall are all the amazing fall flavours: spaghetti squash, apple pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, butternut squash soup, and pumpkin pie all come to mind! In celebration of the beautiful colours and flavours of the season, and to warm you up on a crisp fall day, here's the Ultimate Fall Smoothie (spoiler alert: think pumpkin pie meets apple cider).

The recipe
1/2c pumpkin puree
3 small carrots (not baby carrots, just small organic carrots)
2 empire apples, cored
1" cube ginger, peeled
1/2T pumpkin pie spice
water to achieve favoured consistency

Blend in a high power blender, find your fave fall spot and enjoy!

I would have never thought to make a pumpkin smoothie, but now that I see it- it looks delicious!
