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.
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.
