Somehow I unintentionally celebrated "pi day", despite my hatred of mathematics, and pie.
By drinking a pumpkin pie smoothie.
It was the morning of March the fourteenth, that upon making my morning smoothie, instead of adding a bit of cocoa to my frozen banana and soy milk, I went for a few scoops of pumpkin, and some spices.
It was pure delight in a cup.
I highly recommend it. Who says you can only have pumpkin flavors in the fall?
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1 1/2-2 cups of soy milk (or any milk)
2-3 heaping spoonfuls of pure canned pumpkin
some shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg
a few drops of vanilla extract
sweetener, to taste (agave, honey, sugar, etc)
1/2 tbsp of ground flax seed (optional, I like adding to to my smoothies for a little health kick.)
Assemble all ingredients in a blender or pulverizer of choice. (I use an immersion blender and a large measuring cup).
Sip through a straw and enjoy a healthy delicious smoothie, any time of day or year your heart desires.
