When you think “smoothie,” does your mind automatically conjure up warm-weather fruits like strawberries, blueberries, and peaches? Us too. But just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to step away from the blender. In fact, many of your favorite fall flavors (think cranberries, pumpkin, and cinnamon) are ideal companions for an anytime-of-the-day smoothie. We’ve created some yummy (and healthy) new blends with decidedly autumnal flavors. Here, three delicious smoothie recipes that incorporate fall's bounty to try this season.

Note: All of the smoothies below make 1 serving. To make, blend all of the ingredients together until smooth. Add water a little bit at a time to thin the smoothie, if desired.Â
