I totally and completely did not think I’d be a fan of pumpkin in my smoothie, but as it turns out – this smoothie is definitely one of my new favourites – amazing!! Especially garnished with cinnamon – love love love cinnamon (for its taste and it’s awesome health benefits). Cinnamon helps to regulate our blood sugar levels – a very, very important task. If you cannot use fresh roasted pumpkin, look for BPA-free canned or pumpkin in a tetra-pack.
