Pumpkin Smoothie

DSC_0037

 Once a year there comes a time when I truly start to panic.  Now is that time.  My son has a birthday coming up in 2 months.  Then there is Christmas or as I like to call it Toyapolooza. I have been in cleaning spree mode attempting to reorganize for the holidays.   It’s still about 1,000 degrees here in South Florida.  I really do have to plan ahead or we will be absolutely swamped with toys in 4 months.  I am wistfully thinking of fall weather now! And pumpkin smoothies!

I have eyed weather reports with absolute jealousy that the cooler weather is already descending into the rest of the country.   I am really excited to have this for a breakfast after my bulletproof coffee in the mornings and so I’ll just have to pray the cooler weather comes down here as quickly as possible.  For now I am excited we had a day without soggy wet humidity.  This really has been a great day!

 I love pumpkin not just for its deliciousness but for how healthy it is.  This is how I get magnesium into my diet.  (Maybe that’s just an excuse to have pumpkin all the time!?)  This is so delicious that I will probably use this recipe as a substitute for egg nog this year.  Pumpkin nog! I love it!

    Elizabeth, this sounds wonderful! Like you I’m in the south and can not wait for cooler weather, it’s so hot and muggy here in New Orleans.

    Just made it, so good! I added ice, little vanilla. Didn’t have pumpkin spice. But, didn’t need it. Perfect. Thanks! P.s. Kids loved it too

      I’m really excited about making a big batch of this on thanksgiving and again on Christmas. It reminds me so much of egg nog. It’s going to make a perfect sub for me. :)
