Yes folks, it's finally here—sweater weather. And with it comes pumpkin spice-everything. As delicious as they are, most of these treats and beverages are filled with sugar.

Push the pumpkin spice latte aside, and enjoy the pure taste of pumpkin in this beautifully spiced warm smoothie that is packed with vitamins, fiber and heart healthy fat. If you don’t have these spices on hand, you can also use McCormick Pumpkin Spice, which will cover all but the ground cloves.
