I’ve been seeing pumpkin flavored foods everywhere this week! It kind of makes me excited for fall…kind of. Don’t get me wrong I love Halloween and the change of the leaves and the crisp autumn days. But it also means winter will be here soon and winter and I are not friends :).
Anyway onto my own pumpkin inspired recipe.
Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie
1 C. Ice
½ Pumpkin Puree (I used frozen)
1 Frozen Banana
1 6 oz container Yoplait Light Very Vanilla
½ C. Milk (any kind)
1 Tbsp. Honey
½ tsp. Vanilla
½ tsp. Cinnamon
¼ tsp. Nutmeg
1/8 tsp. Cloves
Put the ice in the bottom of the blender and then layer all other ingredients on top. Blend until smooth. Smoothie should be nice and thick.
I like as many ingredients as possible to be frozen when I make smoothies. It makes them more thick and delicious. I always keep a bunch of frozen bananas in the freezer, peels on. then I can just pop one in the blender when needed. The frozen pumpkin, that was luck. I froze pumpkin last year in baggies when I decided to cook our jack-o-lanterns 🙂
Apparently I like orange. I noticed my manicure is orange as well as my smoothie and straw.
An afternoon in the kitchen just isn’t complete without one disaster. Yeah, I dropped a big yogurt container on the floor while putting away my groceries…and then I stepped in it…go me.
And go try this smoothie, it’s super tasty 🙂
