Happy Halloween - On Guard Pumpkin Smoothie

The fall is my favorite time of year! The season changes, it is warm in the day and cool and crisp in the morning and evenings. This is a great smoothie for morning or evening and your kids will love it. 

This recipe has healthy ingredients like Almond Milk which is cholesterol free which can help support a healthy heart. Almond milk can also aid in maintaining and lowering blood pressure. Healthy Benefits of Almond Milk
There is also Pumpkin, Which is a great source of beta-carotene. Click on the link for more information on Pumpkin. 
We have our healthy milk, our healthy vegetable and now for our healthy fruit, you guessed it Banana's Potassium is a significant nutrient found in bananas. Consuming a good amount of potassium and lowering intake of sodium are great choices to help reduce risks of cardiovascular disease and heart disease. Bananas are also a great food choice when fighting off viruses because they are easily digested and can get you nutrients without making your stomach upset.
