  2. I agree with Stephanie – that looks perfect for something to start the day off right!

  3. This looks amazing! Where do I get cooked pumpkin?

  5. Hola Folks!

    @Stephanie, Rich, and Cristina… we're glad you like the recipe!!!! This smoothie IS a great way to start the day! It's also great after a workout … or if you want a guilt free dessert 🙂

    @Christina… You can get canned pumpkin from the grocery store, or you can cook your own (cut the pumpkin, de-seed, and roast in the over on 400 until soft and mushy!)

  6. Mmmm, a seasonal smoothie? I love this idea! I also have a portion of a can of pumpkin puree in the fridge!

  7. Thanks! I'm always looking for ways to use up portions of various ingredients!!! 🙂
