Fall is here and gorgeous weather has returned to South Louisiana (82 degrees with a feels like temp of 81 – ahhhh.) The pavement and fall flavors are calling.
Food got answered first with my pumpkin vanilla smoothie recipe.
1/2 scoop Vanilla Shakeology
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
small splash vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Fresh grating of nutmeg
Process: Simply blend first six ingredients until smooth and finish with a light grating of nutmeg across the top.
What are some of your favorite fall flavors and recipes?
Note: I enjoy the drink as is. For a bit extra sweetness, try monk fruit – a natural, low-calorie alternative to sugar. More at Monk Fruit in the Raw. 1 packet of Monk Fruit in the Raw has the sweetness of 2 tsps of sugar so 1/2 – 1 packet should more than suffice.
Oh – the day almost got away from me but I answered the pavement as well.
