If any of y’all have been following my blog you may already know I love pumpkin everything (I mean doesn’t everyone?) and I love smoothies… I literally make a smoothie everyday, sometimes even twice a day. Smoothies are a great and healthy way to get your kids to eat healthy. You can throw in almost anything… Except carrots. I did that once and it was too odd for me to handle. Maybe it was the texture. But hey if you can do it! Today we are sharing our delicious Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Smoothie and I just KNOW you’re going to love it!
Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Hey y’all I am Amy from the blog A Blossoming Life and I’m excited to be here on Kelly’s blog sharing this simple craft.
Will your kids not eat green vegetables? No big deal, just throw some spinach into the smoothie. Cover it up with fruit and no one will know or complain! A little imagination and some healthy ingredients and your possibilities are endless.
Since it’s October and that means pumpkin season I thought it would be fun to make a chocolate pumpkin smoothie… You know because chocolate is amazing and so is pumpkin. Plus, pumpkin is high in vitamin A, C, antioxidants, and has a load of health benefits and chocolate is full of antioxidants too! I’m a Registered Dietitian by day, so I mean it when I say chocolate is healthy! The darker the better, so limit that heavily sugared processed stuff. I know you totally didn’t read that last sentence and only saw chocolate is healthy.
