I admit it when October comes around; I pack my house with candles, pumpkins, and the occasional pumpkin spiced latte #PSL, yes I’m basic. Although I love the holidays, I associate it with heavy carbs and extra unwanted weight gain. Well, that’s not always the case and here is a smoothie recipe you need to add into your morning lineup.
