Pumpkin Smoothie Recipes

Why is it we tend to make the holidays to hectic and complicated? Hours in the kitchen baking and preparing delicious (but heavy) meals may be tradition, but I’m all about making things simple. So this year I’ve created a couple of simple, healthy and delicious pumpkin smoothies. They really take no time at all to make and you’ll love the pumpkin pie flavors. Yum!
