pumpkin pie smoothie {pinterest finds friday}

i am still sick.  i am super bummed that i will miss my 5k tomorrow morning.  when sick, i don’t cook.  i am the worst about making sure i am eating and drinking.  i just hibernate.  this morning i felt the urge to make a smoothie.  it is rainy and chilly this morning, very fall-like.  perfect time for a pumpkin pie smoothie.  i am obsessed with any and everything pumpkin.  so this really wasn’t a no brainer.

off to pinterest i went.  i found this inspiring pin.

the recipe:

1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
1 frozen banana
1/2-1 cup unsweetened milk (dairy, almond, coconut)
2-3 TBSP agave, maple syrup, or honey. i used honey.
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ginger
small pinch of ground cloves

the verdict: yum. serious yum.  i used a pretty big frozen banana and my consistency is very “milk shake-like.”

a perfect fall treat.
