super-green pumpkin spice smoothie

i’ve spent the last two days living the dream, and let me tell you, the dream…is exhausting.

“the dream” of course is referring to the fact that i’ve spent the last two nights screaming, dancing and gawking at a hanson concerts. no bigs.

biggest life dream of my 9-year-old self: fulfilled.

wish fulfillment is a taxing deal though, let me tell you.

waking up this morning, my body demanded nutrients, water and elevated feet. about eleven more hours of sleep would be nice too.

i just can’t party like i used to.

this is absolutely not a pumpkin spice latte.

or a pumpkin white mocha for that matter.

this is something entirely, all together more amazing: health that tastes like creamy, dreamy pumpkin spice.

love your body – feed it green food.

and by all means, love your taste buds and feed them pumpkin and cinnamon!

super-green pumpkin spice smoothie

you will need…

2 cups of raw organic spinach
1 cup of milk (organic cow, almond, coconut, rice,
1 whole medium banana
1 medium apple, chopped (mcintosh or some sweet and tart
apple works well)
1 cup of pumpkin
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
a pinch of ginger

combine spinach and milk in a blender and blend on the highest setting until the mixture becomes smooth. add banana, apple, pumpkin and spices and blend well.

makes roughly two 12oz. smoothies.

seriously, hanson is still so, so, so good after all these years!
