Do you have a small container of pumpkin sitting in your fridge? Leftover from making pumpkin pie, perhaps? Well, I did and decided to whip up a little pumpkin goodness for my breakfast this morning.
It had all of the wonders of pumpkin pie, without the crust. Trust me, you’ll like it. Liquid pumpkin pie… mmm…
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not canned pumpkin pie mix with additives)
1 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1/2 frozen banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp each ground ginger, allspice, cloves, nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Sometimes I find that ground cloves (despite going through a blender AND already being ground) still have hard bits in them. So, you may want to run the whole thing through a sieve and into your glass before consuming. It’s not too fun to be picking brown bits out of your teeth all day. Or, crunching down on one.
