Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Recipe

In a post-Thanksgiving food coma, it can be tempting to give up on pumpkin altogether for a while. But that would be a shame, because pumpkin has so much to offer in both the flavor and nutrition departments. This healthy smoothie hits all the right flavor notes for a pumpkin dessert, but it hits them lightly. It's a nice way to carry on with the spirit of the season while being good to your body.

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup ice
