I actually don’t love pumpkin pie. In fact, I don’t even like it, although it might be growing on me. I love other pumpkin baked goods, like muffins and bread, but something about the texture and the chill of pumpkin pie just doesn’t do it for me.
Because I like the flavor profile, and because I’ve seen them around, I decided to try a pumpkin pie smoothie. And because I always like to get a jump start on my vegetable intake, adding greens seemed like a great idea.
I thought smoothie season was over – it rained all week long. But then today, the sun came out again and we have had perfect weather, so a smoothie didn’t feel so out of place.
It’s not the prettiest thing, I’ll give you that. But it is delicious and so good for you.
