Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
It's here it's here! Well, almost... Fall is my absolute FAVORITE season. What does the beginning of fall mean?! PUMPKIN. FLAVORED. EVERYTHING. I don't mess around when it comes to pumpkin everything. I was desiring something pumpkin for breakfast this morning. I could have made pumpkin waffles... Could have. The lack of motivation this morning was killing me. So, I whipped this up instead. I started working on this recipe last week, and it's finally to perfection.
Guess what happened RIGHT after shooting these photos? My cat knocked it down... All over the floor. The carpet, to be exact. I spent an hour cleaning up the floor, and it still smells nicely of pumpkin.
I've been on a new brand lately, called Wild Foods. You can check out their line here! They have the most coffee, teas, MCT oils, grass-fed whey... But HOLY CRAP. Their coffee is unlike anything I have ever had. It is smooth, rich, and does not leave any sort of bitter aftertaste. How they source this coffee is unbelievable. I would highly highly highly recommend checking their products out. My husband, the coffee snob, the ex Whole-Foods market coffee buyer, the guy who thinks he knows EVERYTHING there is to know about coffee couldn't even admit this was one of the best he's had. See, he's the type that likes to disagree with me. The coffee was gone in like one day, guys. He devoured it. We both did.
Their vanilla powder and grass-fed whey are absolutely exceptional. I added a touch of vanilla powder to this smoothie. It's also excellent in their coffee!
Enjoy the fall, guys. Thank you as always for reading and watching out for my adventures... Hope you all try this one out!
