Pumpkin Smoothie

I love pumpkin smoothies - a great start to the day or mid-afternoon snack.  Here is what I put in mine:

Vanilla protein powder
1 frozen banana
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup greek yogurt (I use plain)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Dash of ground cloves
1 tbls maple syrup or brown sugar (for sweetness, although I usually don't add this)
Water and ice as desired

Instead of water you can try orange juice.  You can also just use 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the other spices.  Regardless, it's yummy.  Drink up!
