Pumpkin Yogurt Spiced Smoothie

Put down the Starbucks PSL and pick this up.
Because the Starbucks PSL doesn’t have 471% of your daily value of vitamin A and 5 grams of fiber.
My point is that you can have your pumpkin spice and do something nice for your body at the same time!
This recipe is for multiple smoothies because I hate having ½ can of pumpkin in my fridge. Blend one of these when you are feeling like dessert (like pumpkin pie).
You don’t have to blend this – you could pour it over ice – if you don’t own a blender.
Have you blended a pumpkin drink?
