I have an announcement this morning. I finally purchased my own domain! You can now find me at http://www.dainty-chef.com/. My old blogspot address will still redirect here, but not forever. So if you have me in your google reader or are a subscriber, please change your feed to my new address.
I sometimes worry that eventually I will run out of recipes to share to keep this blog thing going, but once I get a tiny panic, I always end up finding five new things I want to make. I really love that family members email and text me recipes when they think something is really delicious. My sister immediately texted me one weekend during lunch when she was not very hungry, and had made this smoothie for herself for lunch. She said I needed to try it, so she emailed me the recipe, and I am so glad she did. I put it on my “to make” list for the next weekend and instantly fell in love with smoothies again. I have put them on the back burner since I enjoy all the fresh fruit in the summertime, and honestly don’t really have a desire for them in the colder months. This is the perfect combination for a fall smoothie. The ingredients blend together perfectly to give you a pumpkin pie like drink. Every time I have some leftover pumpkin from another recipe, I intend to make this, easy, quick, and delicious.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
8 oz milk (1 cup)
one ripe banana
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 tsp honey
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
handful of ice (about 1/2 cup)
What you’ll do:
Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
