Dreamy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie by Delightful E Made

Earlier this week I was talking with my blog buddy, Shayla.  She lives in Oklahoma and I live in Virginia, and both of us (as I suspect much of the country) have been melting in the heat.  We are both lovers of fall, and both of us have seen no sign of changing leaves or frost on the doorsteps.  Where is fall, already? Yes, I know…its early September, and fall doesn’t really start for another few weeks.  But, come on mother nature, don’t you know this is my favorite time of year?  Enough with the hot, humid days.  Bring on the cool, crisp days of fall.

Well, Mother Nature may or may not be listening to me, as we have yet another day in the 90’s today in Virginia.  I’ve really been craving the flavors of fall, but just can’t bear to turn on my oven, or suck down a hot pumpkin spice latte when I’m sweatin’ through my shirt.  So, its time to get creative.  This morning I decided to make a nice frosty cold smoothie that will not only satiate my need for some fall flavors, but also not leave me overheated.

I’ve never made a smoothie with pumpkin before, so I was kinda winging it.  I pulled some ingredients together thinking this could go great, or horribly.  Well, it turned out AMAZING!!  When I first took a sip, I though, “OMG!  This tastes like a creamy piece of pumpkin pie!”  Here is how it came together:

  1. oh my gooodnessss! This looks amazing! and yes! Perfect for our sweltering September! It's so good, I sort of included it in my Autumn post as well. Is that cheating? I can't wait to try this.
  2. This looks so refreshing and my boys would especially love it! I shared a recipe for a warm pumpkin drink the other day, but you are so right...your smoothie is much more suited to the high 90s we're still experiencing in Texas! So I think I need to try your smoothie now and save my warm drink for November or so when it dips down into the chilly 70s... ;)
  3. Thanks so much for joining us and linking up to Marvelous Monday - this is perfect for fall! I will be sharing on FB this week!
  4. I was just like you last week!! It was hot in Chicago and then I thought I need to usher in Fall by making pumpkin recipes. I like to think it worked since it's cooled off a lot. Thank you so much for linking up to Wake up Wednesdays! Recipe is pinned!
  5. This looks like a perfect way to bring in autumn! I can't wait to start making all things pumpkin :) Thanks for sharing!
