Healthy Pumpkin Smoothie, A Better Pumpkin Latte

Forget that over-priced, high-fat seasonal pumpkin latte that you get at the drive-thru. This pumpkin and vanilla smoothie with espresso one has much more fiber, the fats are plant-based healthy fats and you’ll also get 25% of both your Vitamin B-12 and calcium. If you need to watch your sugar, feel free to substitute a natural sweetener like Stevia or Truvia. It also will help you blast fat with its caffeine. You can used canned pumpkin with this in a pinch, but roasted is better.
