Pumpkin-Orange Smoothie

There's nothing like a refreshing glass of pumpkin in the morning. It sounds so wrong but if you're a fan of pumpkin pie you will love this smoothie!

We were out at a restaurant a couple weeks ago and they had freshly squeezed pumpkin-orange juice and I just HAD to get it. And it was actually really good! I've never had pumpkin juice before but I can imagine how healthy it must be.

Oh and this smoothie is best when you use freshly squeezed oranges as opposed to the high acidic bottled OJ.

1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 banana, frozen

Blend it and sprinkle w/ additional spice

Smooth pumpy
