Yep, it’s October.
So I’m going to throw pumpkin and halloween at you all at once. I’m sorry, but you’re welcome.
I’m really not much of a sweets person. I’d rather indulge in a hearty dinner or bowl of popcorn than a sack of candy. Okay, except for M&M’s and junior mints. I can’t pass those up.
Since we all know there will be no avoiding the candy bowl, at least I’ll have something healthy, which will hopefully limit going back for thirds.
This is the most excited I’ve ever been for Halloween. A holiday meant for kids and now I finally have one! I mean, how cute is this? Still unsure what I’ll be dressing mr. mace up as, but I do know what will be served.
These pumpkin spice chia seeds smoothies are the perfect before the sugar rush hits. Kid or adult. Why not fill em’ up with something healthy and nutritious, but also seasonal. It’s great for breakfast or an afternoon treat. Plus the touch of decor
Then for the touch of Halloween, I wrapped the glasses in white spider web and then added a fake spider. Then for the table, I wrapped it with black web with more fake spiders. You get the theme here.
Let the countdown begin!

Pumpkin Spice and Chia Seed Smoothie
- ½ cup Rice Dream® or Soy Dream®
- ½ banana
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- ¼ yogurt – I used The Greek Gods® Vanilla Honey Yogurt
- 2 tablespoon gluten-free Arrowhead Mills® Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats
- 1 tablespoon Spectrum® Chia Seeds
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- pinch of ground ginger
- 1-2 tablespoon honey or agave
- large handful of ice
Place all ingredients into the blender. Blend until well combined. Serve and enjoy.
Tip – you can also swap out the yogurt for vanilla ice cream and it’s a relatively healthy dessert smoothie!
