Low-carb pumpkin cheesecake smoothie for warm fall days

No need to turn on the oven with this low-carb pumpkin cheesecake smoothie. It makes a great healthy breakfast or post-workout snack.

t

t One of the joys of fall is that first bite of a delicious pumpkin cheesecake. Creamy smooth with that spicy, gingery bite, it’s two amazing desserts in one. You get your pumpkin pie, you get your cheesecake, you are happy.

t But it’s not so easy to whip up a pumpkin cheesecake on a moment’s notice. It requires mixing and blending and quite a bit of baking time. And then after it’s baked, it needs to be refrigerated for a while for best consistency. Who has time to wait that long? Why not put some of those same delicious ingredients into your blender and drink your favorite fall dessert with a straw?

t And this treat is low-carb and free of refined sugars. Healthy and delicious!
