Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

By November 1, 2012 nourish One Comment

Eating seasonally is not only healthy, but tasty.  I do confess, though, that the pumpkin for this smoothie came out of a can. Ideally I would prepare and cook some ahead to time to include.  If convenience is your thing, at least make sure that pumpkin is the only ingredient listed on the can – no added sugars, preservatives or other items with funny names you can’t pronounce.

I tend to eyeball a lot of my smoothies. I’ll start doing less of it so that I can guide you guys along but I encourage everyone to experiment sometimes (except with baking, which is a science not to be messed with lightly unless you are prepared to ruin things a couple times).
