It’s officially Fall, and we’re already feeling the pumpkin madness.
Enter the Pumpkin Spice Green Smoothie!
Below is a savory-sweet and spicy green smoothie that we’ve been enjoying as an afternoon snack. Think nostalgic and warming healthy snack for you and your kiddos. You could even give it to your kiddos as a nutrient boost pre-trick-or-treating next month!
We love the transition into Fall, but we recognize that it’s the season that we’re faced with tough decisions. The temptations start to roll in with the cooler weather and long list of holidays.
So what do we do when faced with sugary treats?
Do we indulge our sweet tooth at every turn? Or is it possible to fill our tanks with something delicious, hydrating, and nutritious, and actually stave off awakening the sugary beast?
Yes it is!
Get your fill of pumpkins while they last. It’s as nature intended. We’ll be rolling out pumpkin recipes all season, so there’ll be no shortage of options for you to try out!
Enjoy and here’s to a healthy Fall.
With love and lots of pumpkin spice,
