Halloween Treats: Pumpkin Almond Smoothie
Packed with seasonal goodies and nutrition-rich foods such as almonds and olive oil, this is the smoothie for autumn! Because the pumpkin was organic, this recipe leaves the skin unpeeled—but you can opt to take it off. Pumpkin seed oil can be substituted for olive oil, and maple syrup can be used in place of honey.
