Its 4 days until thanksgiving, and today I am sharing with you a real sweet treat to add to your thanksgiving festivities.
I never really thought of putting pineapple and pumpkin together until I had a craving for a pumpkin smoothie, and I had this pineapple just staring at me on the counter. So I decided that I would merge the two and make a beautiful creation.
The two pair really well together, and the pineapple really gives it a sweet and scrumptious taste. It’s definitely a delicious combination, and its very quick and simple to whip up. This smoothie is dairy free, refined sugar free, and gluten free. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with family and festivities!
