If you’re anything like me, you love Fall and the taste of Pumpkin. For me, these two go together like bootprints on a trail. (Sorry, had to get my outdoor geekiness in there somewhere) Add some Apple Cider in there and you’ve got me hook, line & sinker! (Oh Gosh, another one, somebody stop me!)

This most awesome recipe will help you get your Pumpkin fix in without killing your calorie count for the day!
