Pumpkin Green Smoothie

pumpkin patchI truly enjoy my daily green smoothie. Now that it is full fledged autumn, I am pleased to bring you a pumpkin green smoothie. The color may not be as fantastic as a typical green smoothie, but I assure you the taste is worth it. Test it out, and let me know what you think. As always, use spices to taste. You can always add more, but you can never take them out!

What’s in it for You?

Pumpkin doesn’t just add great taste and texture to smoothies, it’s got great nutritional benefits! The 1/2 cup canned pumpkin in the smoothie recipe below has about 4 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. It’s also bursting with vitamins A and K.
