Pumpkin smoothie bowl

Ring in the Fall with a delicious pumpkin smoothie

What better way to kick start the first week of Fall than with a pumpkin smoothie bowl?

Well, technically it’s Fall, even though in Toronto we are still clinging to almost summer-like weather (41°C or What better way to kick start the first week of Fall than with a yummy pumpkin smoothie bowl? 105.4 °F with the humidity). In my mind, no matter how hot it is, I feel like pumpkin is the ingredient to go with today! Side note: am I the only one who thought it was punkin as a kid?

I used to make this as a smoothie but with the extra ingredients, it makes an amazing smoothie bowl chock full of healthy goodness. Just some of the health benefits of this smoothie include boosting immunity for disease prevention, helping with depression, and intestinal and heart health.
