I love pumpkin season, however the added sugar from the lattes and sweet treats adds up quickly. This pumpkin smoothie satisfies that pumpkin craving without all of the added sugar. Bonus, you even get some healthy fat from the flax and chia seeds!
I like to make this, and other smoothies, in large batches using my Ninja blender. I purchased these Glass Juicing Bottles from Amazon to portion, freeze, and pull out to defrost throughout the week. Quick, easy, nutritious breakfast in a glass. Food prep at it’s finest!

1 cup Nut milk of choice

Using a frozen banana helps thicken up the smoothie. If the smoothie is too thick add more nut milk or water. I like to use unsweetened cashew milk, it’s thicker than almond milk and helps make the smoothie nice and creamy. When blending, start on a slower speed and gradually increase to ensure ingredients blend well.
