Pumpkin Smoothie

Make this now.

It is the very essence of fall in a cool, creamy, good-for-you drink.

I love tricking myself into eating a serving of vegetables while it feels like I'm eating pumpkin ice cream.

Fall Pumpkin Smoothie

1 cup canned pumpkin
3/4 cup plain yogurt or milk
3-4 ice cubes
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (this is totally not necessary, just makes it more of a meal and adds some sweetness- instead of the vanilla protein powder you could substitue a frozen banana, 1 tsp vanilla extract, cocoa powder, some sugar- anything to add a little sweetness)

And thats it! Go make yourself one, and then wrap up in a big blanket on the couch and enjoy this awesome season!
