Pumpkin season is still going strong, so I just had to sneak another pumpkin recipe in the mix.
This one is a super, simple smoothie that happens to have a big handful of greens in thrown in the mix but still tastes just like pumpkin pie!
Oh! And if you have kids who don’t like eating green things, just tell them that this is a ‘Monster Mash-Up Smoothie’ or better yet ‘ a ‘Green Slime Smoothie’. I find the little ones are pretty easy to persuade as long as we keep things fun and playful.
