Bring on the PumpkinPosted: September 18, 2010
When fall comes around I want all things pumpkin and apple.
Today was all about the pumpkins.
I went for a 20mile ride this morning and had a pumpkin pie recovery smoothie upon my return.
- 1 small banana or 1/2 large banana – do not use full large because you want it to taste like pumpkin, not banana! (You can also use a liquid sweetener like Agave, but I like to use banana as a sweetener because of all of the added nutrients)
- 3/4 cup pumpkin
- dash salt
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove
- 4 ice cubes
- 2 TBS vanilla hemp protein powder
- 1/2 cup almond milk
Along with my smoothie I have had 2 pumpkin muffins from a box my G-Ma gave me.
I subbed the oil with applesauce and they were still moist and delicious!
I’ve already made pumpkin oats a few times, what pumpkinie thing should I make next?!?!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
