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.

    Interesting choice for a smoothie! Never had pumpkin smoothie and can’t help but raise one eyebrow (like Stan)….I’m not sure I can drink a pumpkin, but of course, I haven’t even tried it yet! It’s probably the best tasting smoothie ever! I’m actually going to try this recipe and let you know what I think.

    Carrie,

    I have been trying to use a lot of almond milk. I know it must be better for you. The almond milk with the frozen yogurt, pumpkin and spices sound extremely delicious. I am going to try this soon.
    Blessings,
    Diane
