October Pumpkin Series: Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

It's Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeen! Today is my second favorite holiday, after Christmas (of course). My parents always go a bit overboard on holidays, and Halloween is no exception. Every year our house was transformed into a spooky set-up where my parents would mess with the the pre-teens but take off their masks and turn on the lights for the babes. I associate Halloween with smells - pumpkin slime on my hands, a pillowcase full of chocolate, plastic costumes. It also reminds me of cinnamon and nutmeg, two staples of this Pumpkin Spice Smoothie from intern Macy. Tonight may be all about candy, so fuel up this AM with a protein and pumpkin! This also makes a great breakfast or snack for kids!
