Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I’m not a big smoothie fan. I drink one and then about 5 seconds later I’m still hungry. They do nothing for me.

But for some reason the other morning I was in the mood for a pumpkin smoothie of some sort (don’t worry, I proceeded to eat “real” food after ;)) so I came up with this. Nothing super original but heres a recipe!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup pumpkin (I used Libby’s canned, don’t use pumpkin pie!)

1/2 cup coconut cream (the thick stuff at the top of the coconut milk can)

1/2 cup milk of your choice (or water, may need more depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothie)

1 small banana

1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice mix together some cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground ginger, a splash of ground cloves if you have it)

Mix everything together in a blender. Add more liquid if you desire or more spice. Taste test it then pour into a cup and drink upppp.

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
