I wasn’t a fun of pumpkin until I discovered this delicious way to get it into my diet. I would say I am really obsessed with it now and love that my kids are loving it for breakfast before going to school. They are just like me. They hate pumpkin. When asking for this smoothie they always say; can you make us the mongo smoothie? Ha, yes they think it’s mongo. It’s very filling and I don’t worry if this is the only thing they get for breakfast.
I hope I will discover some other ways to love pumpkin, but for now this smoothie is good enough for us.

It’s really important to start your day with something healthy and nourishing for your body. Smoothies make your life easy if you are a parent figuring out what to give your kids for breakfast. It’s also a great way to eat healthy on the go. I use to make it and walk out of the door and drink it on my way to work. Here is another protein smoothie that I love to make.
