Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Even though summer is my favorite month and it has just ended, I do enjoy Fall (it’s at least better than winter).  The leaves are changing into beautiful colors, apples are the most delicious tasting, and pumpkin becomes very popular.  Fortunately, it has been very warm here lately and I have been able to enjoy pumpkin in cool refreshing smoothies.  Hopefully, it stays warm a little longer so I can continue to enjoy this delicious smoothie packed with protein for a great post workout treat!
