Each year in September, pumpkin spice everything begins to show up!

Your favorite coffee shop begins to add a seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte to their menu. A well-known doughnut shop begins to offer pumpkin spice cake doughnuts and pumpkin cheesecake doughnuts. Ben and Jerry’s even has a pint of pumpkin cheesecake ice cream available in your grocery store freezer section. I have seen pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice items popping up any and everywhere. This definitely makes it very hard to resist the temptation to give the pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavors a try.

But wait, before you head to the store to purchase pumpkin pie spice let me share with you how you can make your own at home simply by mixing together spices that you probably currently have in your kitchen. All you have to do is grab a small jar or airtight container and mix together the following:

And…

Now that you have your pumpkin spice blend all mixed up, you can use it to make this yummy pumpkin pie smoothie. Easy to make, creamy, and big on pumpkin flavor. A great way to switch up your regular smoothie routine.
