Spicy Pumpkin Smoothie

Looks like I’ve REALLY been lovin’ on smoothies lately. Guess you’ve kind of noticed…

Surprisingly enough, though, I hadn’t even made a pumpkin version yet.

Well, let me tell you, once I got that can of pumpkin puree opened up, I’ve been enjoying one of those babies every single day for the entire week!

Do I really need to tell you just how good it tastes?

I thought not…

Really, the name says it all! ;)

      Felicia, I wouldn’t see why you couldn’t omit the egg whites, really. As for the taste? Well, other than to say it tastes like sweet, spicy pumpkin, I don’t really know how to describe it. Guess the best way to find out is to try it for yourself! ;)
