Fall Smoothies to Celebrate #Smoovember and a Giveaway

Pin It
When I'm in the mood for a healthy snack or a quick breakfast, I often whip up a smoothie.
By keeping banana slices and other frozen fruit in my freezer, I usually have everything I need to make a healthy smoothie in no time. 

I was recently given the opportunity to try two Smoothie Blenders from Hamilton Beach.
Hamilton Beach has been making blenders for over 100 years, so I was excited to give them a try!



















The Smoothie Smart blender has a dedicated smoothie button to help take the guess work out of making a perfect smoothie.  The Single Serve blender makes it easy to take your smoothie on the go.
I loved how the single serve cup fit perfectly into my cup holder!
Both blenders worked great and were easy to clean.
Check out the mess-free spout on the Smoothie Smart blender - I loved that feature.



















I definitely use the single serve blender more often, but I can't wait to have my girlfriends over for Girl's Night wine smoothies using the Smoothie Smart blender :)

Here are two of my favorite fall smoothie recipes.
Hope you like them too!




















Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

1 very ripe banana (or 1 cup frozen banana slices)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (I use Libby's)
3/4 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup ice

Combine all ingredients into the Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender.
Blend until smooth.
Serves 1.




















Apple Almond Smoothie

1 apple, peeled and diced
1 cup frozen banana slices
1 T almond butter
1 T ground flax seed
sprinkle of ground cinnamon
3/4 cup almond milk

Combine all ingredients into the Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender.
Blend until smooth.
Serves 1.

Note - I prefer my smoothies not to be too sweet.  You may want to add honey or Truvia to sweeten.

Now for the giveaway!





















Hamilton Beach has offered to giveaway a Single Serve Blender and a Smoothie Smart Blender
to one of my readers.  How nice is that!!
