Pumpkin Day 11

Not only did we have an overwhelmingly pumpkin-themed day at the pumpkin patch, I made a refreshing pumpkin smoothie for an afternoon snack when we got back.  It was super hot at the pumpkin patch and we were quite sun baked by the time we got back home.  Something icey and creamy sounded like it was in order.

I followed this recipe from, of course substituting coconut milk yogurt for Greek yogurt.  I used agave syrup instead of honey and didn't add a protein powder.  Although that would be a good idea for next time, and after downing this smoothie in about 2.5 seconds because it was so good, there will definitely be a next time.  It tastes like pumpkin ice cream!  Sooo good.  

Here is the recipe courtesy of
