I swear, this is going to be the worlds quickest post today.

It wasn’t until I woke up this morning that I realized I had about a BILLION things to do. Not to mention that I also forgot that it is Halloween… whoops, my bad.

There is just no way I’m going to get everything I need to get done today completed. It’s just one of those days where your life is a little “overbooked” so to speak, haha.

But! I am still going to attempt the impossible. It’s time to hit super warp speed…

So, quickly let me just tell you at least something about this wonderful smoothie-

Another healthy and delicious dessert-like smoothie! My favorite kind : )

Personally, I like to make it with a frozen banana since they always add the most AMAZING texture to smoothies. They help thicken them and make them almost milkshake-like in consistency. Love it. Unfortunately, with the banana texture you also get the banana taste… that’s why I’ve also included the option to use dates as well. For that matter 3 tablespoons or so of raisins (soaked for easier blending) will work great too.

I’m a big fan of pumpkin pie so this smoothie is easily one of my favorites that I’ve made to date. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!
