Decorate the inside of a clear glass with a jack o’lantern face, and then enjoy this yummy autumn smoothie! Use sweet potatoes or pumpkin puree for a holiday treat and some extra antioxidants and vitamin A & C!
I used a banana to help sweeten and add good texture, greek yogurt for some richness, and brown sugar for yummy fall flavor. Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice make this smoothie a perfect treat!
