Did you get snowed in this week like we did here in New England? We got about 20 inches here in NH, but some parts of the state saw as much as 30! It’s a really good thing that my husband bought a snow blower last weekend. I suppose this photo does not do it justice!
Either way, snow storm or not, I still drink a smoothie every morning. Every. Morning. No matter what. They are easy, so I can drink them in the car on my way to work, and delicious! And there are so many variations, it is a breakfast that never gets boring.
I also love pumpkin all year ‘round (if you follow my blog you know I kind of have an obsession). And I always keep a few cans of pumpkin in my cabinet, no matter what time of year. I was jonesing for some pumpkin the other day, and whipped up this pumpkin smoothie, tastes just like a pumpkin muffin or a slice of homemade pumpkin pie. SO delicious. Add a little honey if you prefer it sweeter, but I don’t think it needs it. The thing I think makes this taste most like a pumpkin muffin is the added graham cracker. It gives it that taste like a sweet crumbly crust. I love Elana’s Pantry Graham Cracker recipe, it’s easy to make and very tasty! Dessert in a cup? Yes, please!!
