Pumpkin pie-flavoured smoothie: a delicious blend of pumpkin, carrot, banana, yoghurt, ground flaxseed and spices

As pumpkins are currently in season and can be seen in almost every shop and marketplace I thought to make the most of this opportunity and try out a few different recipes, one of which was this tasty breakfast smoothie.

With creamy texture, and autumn-like colours and flavours that are perfect for this time of the year, the pumpkin pie-flavoured smoothie is definitely worth giving a try!
