Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie

Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie
Fall is in the air and that means the holiday season is not far behind.
As soon as Starbuck’s starts promoting their Pumpkin Latte you know pumpkin season is in full swing. You definitely don’t need to succumb to the breads, muffins, cookies and coffee drinks that while using the word “pumpkin”, really aren’t offering much beyond pumpkin flavoring that has little to no actual pumpkin in it, or so much added sugar that it has left any health benefits of pumpkin way behind! We have many fun, delicious, healthy pumpkin recipes on this site for you to enjoy. This smoothie is fun, fast and healthy – a great way to start your day!Please let me know how you enjoy it.
