  1. Stephanie,
    I’m not a big fan of pumpkin. But these recipes have me really tempted.
    I think I’m going to have to try one of them this weekend!

      if you give the smoothie a taste and it is too “pumpkiny” for you, add a frozen banana…those make everything just a little sweeter and better!
