When it comes to smoothies, we all have our go-tos. But once in a while, it's nice to spice things up—literally. Get inspired by the season with these fall smoothie recipes that take your favorite cold-weather indulgences (hello, caramel apples and pumpkin pie!) and lighten them up in a big way. These recipes taste so good, we're guessing you'll be jonesing for them in June as much as you are now.
A Good Hue
Sweet Potato Spiced Fall Smoothie
Make a batch of Amanda's homemade pumpkin pie spice or sprinkle in the store-bought kind for a savory and spicy smoothie. The sweet potatoes help make this recipe thick and creamy while serving up a side of vitamins A, C, and potassium.

Talk about a pumped-up pumpkin recipe! Use both canned pumpkin and spice for this smoothie. It'll satisfy your craving for something sweet without the empty calories your typical pumpkin spiced latte habit packs on.

Vanilla and Bean
Autumn Spice Smoothie
Swap apple cider for mulling spices if you're short on time for this smoothie. Blend with rooibos tea, a cored apple, and some vanilla extract and your taste buds will get a little hit of both sweet and spicy in this glass.

Heather's French Press
The Roasted Root
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Finally, a new way to use your overripe bananas for something other than banana bread (because those carbs cannot be our friend all season long). Freezing bananas before you blend helps keep the consistency thick and creamy, while pumpkin puree and maple syrup add a naturally sweet flavor.

The Lemon Bowl
Blueberry Ginger Peach Smoothie
Ginger is a major fall spice—mostly for its immune-boosting properties and its aid in relieving nausea (which comes in handy after a night of one too many spiked ciders). Combine with flaxseed meal and protein powder to stay full throughout the morning.

One Ingredient Chef
Chai-Infused Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Chai tea is typically a blend of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. When paired with pumpkin you get an earthy smoothie that not only tastes good—it helps boost your mood right in time for chilly weather and early sunsets, too.

Keepin' It Kind
Persimmon Berry Smoothie
Persimmons peak in the fall—especially in November—making this fruit a must-blend when the leaves start to turn. If you can't get your hands on the actual fruit (which you should ripen in a brown bag, similar to a banana or avocado, and then refrigerate) try persimmon extract for a similar taste.

A Cedar Spoon
Crunchy Creamy Sweet
Cranberry Pomegranate Smoothie
Pick up some pomegranates as soon as your local market puts them out on the shelf. Whether you find the whole fruit or the pre-packaged seeds (which are called arils), these puppies will come in handy blended up in your smoothie for your immune system as cold and flu season starts up.

Knead to Cook
Berry Chocolate Beet Smoothie
Beets mean well, but figuring out how to cook or eat them can often be confusing. This smoothie makes it simple: Toss the whole root—including the greens—in with a frozen banana, your favorite berries, and raw cacao powder for a rich, veggie-filled feast in a glass.

Healthy Nibbles & Bits
Kale, Peach, and Clementine Smoothie
Blend the best of both seasons with this recipe. Kale is a fall staple for leafy greens (not to mention a smoothie superfood), while peaches and clementines will help you raise a glass in memory of the warm weather of yesteryear.
