Low Carb Pumpkin Apple Protein Smoothie

 I’ve been on this protein smoothie kick for over a month now, and I can’t shake the habit! At least it’s a good habit to have! 

This recipe is in the spirit of All Things Pumpkin. Love this time of year! Pumpkin is THE BEST to incorporate into desserts of all kinds. It adds moisture as its a great fat replacement in recipes. Make sure you look their my recipes for other pumpkin ideas!

Now onto this easy recipe…
