Our Favorite Pumpkin Smoothie

Embracing Pumpkin Spice Season

I have perfected the most delicious and warming winter smoothie!  It is so good. I have been eating this almost every afternoon for a delicious after school snack.

This smoothie is perfect for giving your child (and yourself!) a warming, hormone balancing boost after school. The pumpkin is a slow burning, high energy carbohydrate, the coconut milk supplies healthy fats that maturing hormones need, the hemp seeds and pecans provide a boost of protein and the spices work together to lower inflammation and balance her blood sugar.

Did I mention that it tastes really good?

Blend up some after school deliciousness to celebrate pumpkin season!
