Pumpkin-Protein Smoothie: Kid-Friendly

October 31, 2012

How many smoothies do y’all make a week? I can’t even begin to count over at my house. My kids are always trying new creations, and I am trying to keep up with their creativity. This Pumpkin-Protein Smoothie was a recent favorite. I had some leftover pumpkin, and I thought why not try it with peanut butter? It sounds a little weird at first, but it works. Happy Halloween! Here’s to a great fall 2012!
