Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Maybe your sick of the thought of pumpkin, but I love it throughout the fall and winter. Pumpkin pie has the spices and aromas of Thanksgiving and home. But you really shouldn't eat it ALL the time, so here's a smoothie to nix that craving. This is healthy enough for breakfast and sweet enough for dessert (maybe add a little homemade whipped cream on top!)
