Creamy pumpkin smoothie recipe: the perfect autumn treat

Pumpkin as an ingredient in baking and cooking is extremely versatile and is easily stored for long periods. From pie to soup there is a savory or sweet flavor for all. Pumpkin is a vegetable of the squash variety and is grown by farmers around the globe. Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants, carotene, Vitamin A, and other complex nutritional benefits.

Simmer engineers are always experimenting with both code and recipes in the kitchen and pumpkin season is no different. This pumpkin smoothie recipe recently became a seasonal favorite on our team.
