Pumpkin Pie Smoothie - Secret Recipe Club


And, welcome to another Secret Recipe Club post. This month I got a fabulous blog called Mostly Food and Crafts written by one very crafty lady. Danielle is a mom of 2 beautiful kids, and I like that she gets them involved in her cooking and crafting.

In addition to all the great recipes Danielle has posted, there are also a ton of wonderful crafts to try out. A Thankful Garland and Tablecloth would be great projects for Thanksgiving. And her Thanksgiving Platter is super cute! It’s the perfect project to do with your kids and keep around for years to come.

I was looking for something seasonal this time around, because here in Canada, today is Thanksgiving! I might be tempted to add a little more pumpkin next time to get a bit more pumpkin flavour. Or maybe use only half a banana. But this was one of the best flavours of smoothie I think I've ever had.  

My 6 year old made that beautiful turkey at school. Thought I'd share.
