Dreamy Pumpkin Smoothie

I love pumpkin, okay? I love pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice...everything. And you know what? I don't feel bad about that, because pumpkin is so good for you: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium...oh so many delights. So you can have one of these and think of it as a healthy treat!
1 cup coconut ice cream (look, you can use soy, but it's just not quite as good!)
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (perhaps more, if it pleases you)
1/4-1/2 cup coconut milk
1 TBS agave or maple syrup
1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Step 1: Blend ingredients, using as much coconut milk and spice as you like
Step 2: Drink and savor, my friends

It's like pumpkin pie in a cool, creamy cup. Feel free to top with roasted pecans or shredded coconut--this is a real treat for your tastebuds. Bonus: it's vegan--no animals were harmed in the making of this smoothie!
