Supermodel Karlie Kloss has long been a trendsetter in the healthy living world, between creating her gluten-free Karlie's Kookies with Milk Bar maven Christina Tosi and sharing her (impressive) workout moves on her namesake YouTube channel. This past weekend, she ran the New York City Marathon, and before she took to the streets, she took to the internet to share her training tips—and the healthy recipes that have kept her going.

While the almond butter blondies she eats pre-race look absolutely delicious, we were smitten with her pumpkin turmeric recovery smoothie. The drink combines pumpkin, turmeric, coconut milk, and spices for a smoothie that tastes, essentially, like liquid pumpkin pie. The pumpkin contains vitamin A and tons of fiber, making it great for your skin and gut health, and the turmeric—well, you already know what a powerful inflammation fighter the super spice is. The coconut milk offers satiety-inducing fat, which is also necessary to absorb fat-soluble vitamin A. Our only suggested change? Adding a bit of black pepper to the recipe—the piperine, combined with fat, makes turmeric way more bioavailable.

Check out Carly's go-to recipe in the video below:
