Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Like most orange-colored vegetables, pumpkin is packed with vitamin A, which keeps your eyes super healthy! And luckily you can just open a can of pumpkin instead of cooking your jack-o'-lantern. With its vanilla and spice flavors, this smoothie tastes like pie in a glass.

Notes

Waste Not: You will only use a part of the can of pumpkin puree, but don't waste it! Measure out 1/4-cupfuls of the rest of it, freeze them solid on a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet, then store them in a labeled plastic bag in the freezer, where they'll be ready for future smoothies!
DID YOU KNOW?
"Dash" and "pinch" both mean an amount too small to measure. Usually a dash refers to a liquid (like vanilla or hot sauce) and a pinch refers to a powder (like cinnamon or red pepper flakes).
