it's not easy being green

unless, of course, you are a delicious and creamy and filling pumpkin smoothie. in that case, your short sweet life will be perfect.

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 ripe frozen banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp ground flax
1/2 - 1 cup nondairy milk
1 handful of spinach (optional, but essential to be green!)
1/4 cup raw or roasted(!!) walnuts

combine everything except the walnuts in a blender and blend blend blend until combined. i like mine thicker, so i only use ~1/2 cup of soy milk, but i also like to eat it with a spoon so do what your heart tells you. then add in walnuts and pulse a few times. this will leave you with a nice crunchy smoothie. crunchy smoothies are  going to be a thing.
