Tis the season for pumpkin! If you are pumpkin lover like I am, this is a must try recipe for this holiday season. I want to thank my friend, Ashli, for sharing it with our Healthy Edge community!
If you have trouble drinking COLD smoothies during this time of the year, try this trick. I have a cup of hot water with my smoothie. I take a drink of my smoothie and then take a drink of the hot water. I just love my smoothies too much to give them up during the fall and winter months!
