It’s October and you know what that means … PUMPKIN OVERLOAD! When we enter our grocery store, we know it is “pumpkin season” as we are welcomed by the different pumpkins used as decorations in the front of the store. Our taste buds start to send signals to our brain telling us that we must devour a homemade pumpkin pie by the end of this season.
However, our busy schedules say otherwise and discourage us from taking part in the Pumpkin trend this month. We conclude that we won’t have time to make this delicious pumpkin recipe, since we barely have to time to prepare our regular meals. Do not be discouraged any longer! I have developed a pumpkin recipe that takes no longer than 5 minutes! Yes, you read right … 5 minutes! Below you will find below the ingredients and steps to create a PUMPKIN SMOOTHIE that you can make for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
