Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I'm on a pumpkin kick lately. In the previous post I wrote about a new favorite juice made with carrots, apples and pumpkin pie spice -- YUM~
For a few weeks I have been ruminating on a new recipe. I have several cans of organic pumpkin in the cupboard and I suppose that's what set it off. The only time I usually ever think about pumpkin recipes is around Thanksgiving, but it's been calling to me lately. I am not a canned vegetable person, well...except for canned corn, I still like that now and then, but the smoothie that's been inspired is one made with pumpkin, bananas and pumpkin pie spice, finally this morning I tried it -- did I say YUM!
I used about 2/3 a small can of pumpkin
couple pieces of frozen banana
2 small ripe bananas
small amount of coconut nectar
2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
about 1/2 cup of water
I put the pumpkin and the frozen banana pieces into the Vitamix first with a little water and then operated on high for a few seconds. I turned it off and added the nectar, ripe bananas, spice and more water and operated for approximately 45 seconds.
First I poured it in a glass: Pumpkin pie in a glass:
Then I decided that since it was a bit thick to pour it in a bowl for some pumpkin soup:
Either way: in a glass or bowl it was very good. Enjoy!
