Pumpkin Spice Avocado Smoothie ~ Savory Simple

Yes, I know it’s a bit early for a pumpkin smoothie.  Here’s the thing.  Remember how in my last post I mentioned Penzeys Spices?  I’m really lucky because there are several locations near where I live.  I love taking a drive to the spice shop and letting my nose lead me to different corners of the room.  I was there over the weekend and one of the many spices that caught my eye was their pumpkin pie spice.  I go through a ton of it in the fall and I knew I was running low so I gave theirs a whiff.  Wow!  So fragrant and much better than whatever brand I bought last year.  I immediately grabbed a bottle to purchase.

This morning I looked in the refrigerator.  I saw half an avocado and a container of coconut milk that I opened yesterday when I realized I had no milk for my coffee.  These ingredients were just begging to be made into a smoothie and, frankly, I was dying to taste my new pumpkin pie spice.  Summer, fall, whatever.  Why wait?  This is a really filling and satisfying smoothie.  I won’t pretend it’s low calorie but it’s full of healthy fat and quality ingredients.  And I was excited when I finally tasted the pie spice.  I love summer but I think I’m ready for fall.

What are you looking forward to this fall?  I get excited for apple picking every year.  And the usual stuff- the leaves, the crisp air, the wonderful smells…. but mostly, I miss my boots!  The fall wardrobe is definitely my favorite.  Ah… boots. Yay.
