I think by now you realize my love of breakfast smoothies. They are an easy, quick, healthy meal option. Last fall, I was all about the apple pie smoothie. Well, this year, I’ve turned my love of pumpkin pie into a delicious breakfast treat.

This recipe truly is a drinkable version of pumpkin pie. It is incredibly thick and creamy. In fact, you could eat it with a spoon. And I venture to say that while it makes a great breakfast, you could easily serve this in smaller portions as a dessert. It’s that good.
