Chocolate Pumpkin Milkshake

I know that healthy and milkshake don’t normally go in the same sentence…

But for the sake that legging season is upon us, I have to be a lot more careful what goes into my belly. Leggings don’t necessarily hide EVERYTHING. (In a perfect world right?) That’s what oversized sweaters and jackets are for though!!

Healthy Chocolate Pumpkin Milkshake

So, in a sense, this isn’t really a milkshake. But it’s creamy and somewhat thick, sweet and full of flavor! So in my mind, it’s a milkshake. (Minus the fat and calories!) Also, there is real pumpkin puree in it, so when you serve it to your kids they are drinking vegetables…

I mean, could you be a better mom?!
