Are you in the mood for pumpkin yet? I think I always am. I don’t need fall weather to get me ready for pumpkin spice waffles. But it certainly helps–especially with the plethora of pumpkin ingredients that and products that start inhabiting the store shelves.
Pumpkin Spice potato chips, Peeps, yogurt, and all sorts of cookies. Even popcorn. I guess I prefer a more natural pumpkin.
What’s better than pumpkin? Pumpkin and chocolate! Amiright? This smoothie blends the best of both to make a HEALTHY version of a pumpkin treat that will either start your day off right or even be a great dessert or snack.
And the antioxidants in dark chocolate are good for you!
