Green pumpkin pie?! Yes! You can’t even taste the spinach, but it does give this smoothie a pretty color and lots of extra nutrients. Perfect for breakfast or a post-workout snack in 5 minutes or less. I debuted these at TREAD fitness in Dallas this past week and while the members were scared of the color at first, they were all asking for the recipe once I convinced them to try it (and mentioned the pumpkin flavor).
