I have been obsessed with pumpkin these past few weeks and I thought I would give it a try in a smoothie recipe.  This smoothie recipe is packed with pumpkin flavor and has plenty of protein to keep you feeling full until lunch time or your next meal.  Feel free to substitute any flavor of protein powder, I plan on trying this with chocolate flavored protein sometime this week.
