Layered Pumpkin and Spirulina Smoothie

Am I the only one who roasts too much pumpkin? Autumn seems to be all about beta-carotene, and every few days I bake another batch of orange awesomeness. I’ve already used it in salads, curries, soups, and oatmeal, so I had to come up with something new to refresh our autumn menu.
