Pumpkin Smoothie Pumpkin Smoothie

This smoothie is all about autumn, pumpkin and best of all it is low fat and healthy for you too.  Pumpkin has so many vitamins and nutrients that are really good for you, even in canned form. The almond milk is terrific if you are lactose intolerant. And if you can drink milk or not, the taste is amazing.  And guess what? It passes the ‘Stan Test’.  My handsome hubby dislikes smoothies and I LOVE them!  They are sssoooo good, but he doesn’t care for ‘blending up a salad to drink it’ as he puts it, or ‘a fruit salad’, etc., but would rather eat them whole.  On the other hand I could drink smoothies all day long:) When I created this one and gave him a taste, HE LIKED IT!  Wowsie and happy dance!!!  I hope you enjoy it too.
