Recipe of the Week

Sorry...I'm a little behind this week in posting a recipe. It's been a busy, crazy week...but, I guess that's what happens when you have a sick one year old, a husband working crazy long hours and are trying to launch your own business!

Anyways....we make a lot of smoothies in our house. My daughter loves them and I love them, especially for breakfast. But, fruit smoothies can get a little boring, so here's a new one to try!

Pumpkin Smoothie


1/2 c. canned organic pumpkin

1 c. skim milk/milk alternative (we use rice or hemp) or coconut milk (for a twist! yum!)

1/2 c - 1 c. ice

1 tsp. honey

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 scoop vanilla protein powder or brown rice powder


Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

Note: When making smoothies, always put in the liquid ingrdients FIRST. This will prevent all of your solid ingredients getting stuck at the bottom.
