Pumpkin Banana Spinach Smoothie Recipe

A Not-Too-Sweet Pumpkin Smoothie For Breakfast

Adding two bananas makes this smoothie a satisfying breakfast option, while the Fall flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon marry nicely with the gourd's. And as always, you can't taste the spinach — so don't be put off by the color — but including the leafy green adds a healthy dose of many essential vitamins and minerals. If you don't want to used canned pumpkin puree, make your own or look for the boxed, BPA-free variety.
