With Halloween right around the corner and all the pumpkins around, we’re experiencing a bit of pumpkin madness over here.
Enter the Pumpkin Spice Green Smoothie!
Below is a savory and spicy green smoothie that we’ve been enjoying as an afternoon snack. Think pre-trick-or-treating snack for you and your kiddos.
Tis the season that we’re faced with tough decisions. Do we indulge our sweet tooth at every turn or is it possible to fill our tanks with something good, hydrating, alkalizing and nutritious, and actually stave off awakening the sugary beast?
Yes it is!
Enjoy your pumpkins while they last. It’s as nature intended. Jo’s Creamy Pumpkin Soup recipe from last week is getting rave reviews too.
Enjoy and have a safe and healthy Halloween.
With love and pumpkin madness,
