PUMPKIN.

By now you probably know I love pumpkin, but it truly is my comfort food as well! Just the thought, smell, or taste of pumpkin makes me so much more at peace and in such a more happier mood :)

Here is an easy, healthy, yet delicious smoothie, that uses About Time’s Vanilla Whey (completely natural and no sweeteners besides stevia!). Use my promo code on TryAboutTime.com, for 25% off! Promo Code=FFF1.

Wanting a delicious frozen treat? Freeze this for about 30 minutes to an hour!

I hope this smoothie puts a smile on your face like it did for me :)

    How do you include the pumpkin in your recipes? Is it raw or precooked?
