It’s Fall and pumpkin and pumpkin spice is in the air! So how could I not bring a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie to you today?

This week is all about my favorite things. . and lately – although it’s hard to tell from my Instagram feed– I’ve been on a heathier kick. I usually have a fruit + yogurt smoothie in the morning, about an hour or two before I run. Almost everything in moderation + exercise right?

These smoothies could not have been possible without my new KitchenAid(R) 5-Speed Diamond Blender.

I love this baby! This thing can stir, chop, mix, puree and liquify, with pulse 1-5 settings and a crush ice mode. Say that 5 times. This blender is tall but it still fits on my counter just fine, right under my cabinets. And powerful!! With a “robust motor, unique one-piece, BPA-Free diamond pitcher, stainless steel blades and electronic controls combine to create a powerful vortex that is fast and thorough for exceptional blending results. Additionally, Intelli-Speed(R) Motor Control senses contents and maintains optimal speed to power through all ingredients.”
