5 Fall Smoothie Recipes You're Going to Want to Make ASAP

September 19, 2018

 

 

With the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks and the Fall Equinox right around the corner (September 22nd), it's officially acceptable to start craving all the fall flavors. I mean, pumpkin spice is good all year round, don't get me wrong, but there's something about the cooler temperatures and smell of the crisp autumn air that makes it taste even better - am I right?

 

Even if you're not a huge pumpkin spice fan, there are plenty of other flavors that just scream fall. Apple cinnamon, salted caramel, hazelnut - I could go on and on. Luckily, these flavors are super easy to turn in to healthy, protein-packed smoothies you can enjoy for breakfast, as a snack, or even as a dessert. Here are 5 simple, healthy fall smoothie recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings this season.
