Forget the mess of making pancakes this weekend and try this Pumpkin Pancake Smoothie instead!

Last week Noah asked for a pancake smoothie, not sure where he came up with the idea, but we went with it.  I scrambled around the house pulling out ingredients and the end product actually tasted like a pancake!  This week I had some extra pumpkin that needed to be used up, so I thought why not make a pumpkin pancake smoothie!

Any smoothie that makes hemp seeds, oats and pumpkin taste like pancakes is okay by me!  Also, don’t underestimate the power of pumpkin!  According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, winter squash including pumpkin protect against cancer due to its super high carotene content.

To make this smoothie even better, we drank it using Eco at Heart reusable stainless steel straws! The lovely Lucy Kate over at Eco at Heart sent me a packet of straws to test out.  It was an offer I couldn’t refuse as I am constantly trying to eliminate as much plastic as possible.  In the past I tried switching from plastic straws to the cardboard straws, which turned out to be a flop…literally. They turn to mush in no time at all!  However, these stainless steel straws withheld the smoothie test! Plus, they are BPA free, non-toxic, super easy to clean with the mini cleaning brush (they are dishwasher safe too!) and there’s no risk of them breaking or rusting so they’ll last for years. Not to mention, they come in plastic free packaging and 5% of all profits will go to helping clean up our beaches and oceans! We love our beaches!

I’ve been looking for stainless steel straws for a while now.  I’m psyched the hunt for them is over! Head over to Eco at Heart to check them out!  Shipping in the USA is free and you will receive a 5% coupon if you sign up to be a part of their community!
