Get your pumpkin spice fix with a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie!

It’s pumpkin spice season! It’s also apple season. October is National Apple Month. Celebrate both with this smoothie that combines pumpkin and SweeTango® apples. The result is a nutritious smoothie that tastes just like pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

This recipe is a complete meal. It includes fruit, a vegetable, a whole grain, and some protein. While this smoothie is very sweet, it contains no unnatural sugar. The sweetness comes from the SweeTango® apple and two dates. Enjoy this nutritious smoothie for breakfast or as an afternoon treat.

Be sure to use 100% pumpkin puree and not pumpkin filling. Pumpkin puree is nothing but 100% cooked pumpkin. Pumpkin pie filling includes spices and sugars that you don’t want for this recipe.

You can also make your own pumpkin puree. Learn how here.

SweeTango® Apples

SweeTango Apples

SweeTango® apples are exceptionally crunchy with a lively touch of citrus, honey, and spice. Oh, and they’re juicy too! It’s everything you want in an apple. SweeTango® apples are a cross between the sweet Honeycrisp apple and the tangy Zestar.

Using careful breeding and expert horticultural practices, research scientists cross-pollinate apple varieties just like bees, birds, butterflies, wind, and rain do in nature. A new variety of apple to many, the first crop of SweeTango® reached grocery stores nationwide in 2009.

SweeTango® apples are available from Applewood Fresh from October through March. They are great for snacking, baking, salads, smoothies, and sauces. Learn more about Michigan-grown SweeTango® apples on the Applewood Fresh website
