Spiced Pumpkin Green Smoothie...


Monday already!?

I am looking forward to getting healthy again from today. I have just joined the gym again and really looking forward to working out. I think once you have worked hard, you are less likely to eat junk food as you know how hard it will be to work it off.

Love smoothies? Looking for something a little different for you morning treat? Something full of goodness to have before or after a workout?

Fancy trying this Spiced Pumpkin Green Smoothie?

A smoothie full of banana, pumpkin puree, watercress, baby spinach, coconut milk, unsweetened almond milk and finished with a tasty ½ tsp of mixed spice. Yummy!!

What a great colour of goodness too!?

Start your day with this ├╝ber healthy blend of pumpkin, watercress and spinach sweetened with almond and coconut milks. How tasty? Perfect for Autumn.

  5. Hi Claire, I totally agree with you. My recent lack of exercise has certainly led me down the trail of not so healthy eating. This smoothie sounds perfect for this time of year and I do like to whizz up my own smoothies so shall give this one a go, just as soon as pumpkin and baby spinach start to reappear in the supermarket again.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
