Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Pumpkin offers some powerful nutrients such as beta-carotene, which the body uses to make Vitamin A. This important antioxidant helps counteract free radicals in our skin, which helps prevent wrinkles and keep our skin looking youthful. Pumpkin is also high in Vitamin C. Bonus points for extra veggies in this smoothie: cauliflower!
