written by Head Health Nutter September 25, 2009

The leaves are turning brown, the air is cool and there are a ton of healthy, yummy vegetables being harvested! Why not add some variety to your usual smoothies by taking advantage of the new season?

This smoothie recipe is made from spiced pumpkin filling and frozen yogurt! While a little high in sugar, canned pumpkin is low in saturated fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Vitamin E, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Iron and Manganese.

@Emmanuel: looking forward to some Thanksgiving desert, eh? lol Me too! 🙂

Glad you like the nutritional values. Isn’t it interesting that the pumpkin spices include cinnamon and cloves? They have antiseptic qualities and made the list of natural alternatives to antibacterials: http://livelighter.org/healthy-alternative-to-antibacterials/!
