Pumpkin Pie Smoothie:

Blend 1 whole head of romaine lettuce, 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 1 large carrot, 1/3 cup cold cooked cauliflower, (optional, for creaminess) 1 scoop vanilla or pumpkin spice protein powder (Tone it Up sells this!) OR 1/3 cup yogurt of choice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, dash of tumeric, 2 dates, and 1/2 cup almond milk. Top with granola or shredded coconut and be thankful for this healthy version of pie in a cup!

Chocolate Peppermint Smoothie:

Blend 1-2 large handfuls spinach, 1/3 frozen banana, 1 piece ginger root,  2 teaspoons cacao powder, 6 fresh mint leaves, 1 teaspoon maca powder, (optional) 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, and a drop of natural peppermint extract with 1/2 cup coconut water. Sip with a smile! Much healthier than peppermint bark or Thin Mint cookies, but that same minty flavor!
