Clean Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

So, this afternoon I am blogging from our local coffee shop, The Axis. What a great place to hang out with friends, drink awesome coffee, socialize, and host a book club. That’s what’s going on later this afternoon, book-club with a terrific group of girls. Many of which are previous students. Another great reason to spend time at The Axis, is the Christian atmosphere. It’s always upbeat and positive with plenty of friends, and quiet spaces as well.

The Axis...a great coffee shop!

Even though it is just September 03, fall is ever-present. Leaves are beginning to fall and scatter across our drive, we’ve harvested the last of the green beans, and only a few tomatoes linger on the drying vines. Night fall is coming earlier than it was two weeks ago. I am always a bit saddened by the changing of seasons, but also find myself longing for those delicious fall drinks! I love pumpkin spice lattes! Truthfully, I love pumpkin anyway it’s served! I’m excited to share one of my favorite fall smoothie recipes with you…my twist on a clean pumpkin spice smoothie!
