Fall is my favorite time of year! The colors, the cooler weather, the fun things to do and, most of all, the flavors!! We went on our annual trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday and had a blast. The only thing missing was….COOLER temperatures! It was so hot! When we got home, I wanted something refreshing, but also something to go with our perfect fall activity filled day. I came up with this concoction. It was SO yummy and Caleb gave it a thumbs up. I will say that I wish I had added a little orange juice to the smoothie mixture, as it was missing just “something” a little sweeter. Of course, you could add a little more honey, some brown sugar, cinnamon…the possibilities are numerous. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
