Now Back To The Mochi Bread and Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Delight!

I love a good smoothie, and one that is perfect for the Fall, with that pumpkin flavor, sounds just perfect!  I never would have thought to make a smoothie with pumpkin pie flavors.  It sounds simply divine!  And then as an added bonus, Hollan showed us how to make Banana Chocolate Chip Mochi Bread.  Oh my and oh yum!  That sounds like the perfect combination, Mochi bread, and a delicious smoothie.
