Chocolate protein pumpkin smoothie

Happy Tuesday! Puppy potty training is in full swing at the Duncan house. Penny is doing actually pretty well and has only had a couple accidents. Unfortunately, she does have kennel cough though, so we decided to take her to the vet last night. We got her some antibiotics, so penny girl should be on the mend soon. She has been so sweet, I swear she doesn’t have one mean bone in her body. I was painting this chair yesterday and she just came up and sat in my lap and snuggled while I kept on painting. Seriously, the sweetest thing ever.


Anyways, on to the smoothie, I made this smoothie yesterday and it was so delicious. Since fall is here, I am fully embracing it and adding pumpkin to everything. So I decided to blend it in with my usual smoothie and it was perfect. The pumpkin made it really creamy and sweet. I also added some spinach to it to get my greens in. After my 4 mile run yesterday, I threw this smoothie together and it was the perfect post workout treat. It was light but also really filling and kept me satisfied till dinner. It was so delicious that I had to share and since everyone loves pumpkin this time of year I thought why not.
