Healthy Pecan Pie Smoothie

This smoothie recipe is perfect for using leftover holiday baking ingredients like pecans, vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup.  It's rich enough that you think you are still eating decadent, but actually, it's quite healthy and high in lean proteins and vitamins so your pants and dresses still fit on New Year's Eve.
