Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie

Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie

Every year during November I go pumpkin crazy. I start making pumpkin loaf, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin scrubs, pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin everything. Anything pumpkin you name it I’m making it. Then all of a sudden the holidays pass and poof! No more pumpkin. So I thought if I have a little bit of pumpkin during the year maybe I wont go all crazy during November. I don’t think it will work but I was really craving pumpkin so I decided to try out a new pumpkin smoothie recipe.
