    Hi Claire, I totally agree with you. My recent lack of exercise has certainly led me down the trail of not so healthy eating. This smoothie sounds perfect for this time of year and I do like to whizz up my own smoothies so shall give this one a go, just as soon as pumpkin and baby spinach start to reappear in the supermarket again.Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.XX

    A green smoothie would be fun for so many occasions especially with children. It also appears flavourful and healthy, so tempting.
