Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
The flavors of fall in one enjoyable  beverage.  This smoothie is like having pumpkin pie in liquid form.  Start with some canned pumpkin, add one ripe banana, some milk, maple syrup, - the pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and some ice.  Process in a blender until smooth.  Taste, and if your smoothie needs a little more sweetness add some more maple syrup. Pour in a glass and top with some whipped cream. Liquid  goodness you can enjoy for a quick pick me up or for a breakfast on the run.
