    Thanks for a great breakfast idea, my regular breakfast smoothie was getting a little stale. I didn’t have vanilla protein powder so I had to substitute chocolate and it’s still good although, I think vanilla would be better. I’m enjoying it right now. YUM!

      Hey Gretchen,
      If you make it again with chocolate, substitute a tablespoon coconut oil for the almonds and the coconut chocolate combo will be delicious!

    I can’t wait to try this! I recently made a pumpkin smoothie but it wasn’t sweet enough for my taste. I think the addition of banana is the key! Thanks for the great recipe. Sounds like the perfect wintertime beverage. Yum!

      Allison, You will love it with the banana, it adds the sweetness and creaminess you need with the pumpkin. Hope you have a wonderful New Years! Amy
