Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

About every other day I make one of these:

Originally I got the recipe from Mama Pea's great blog.
Since I like a little less spice (although you might like hers better)
this is what I put in mine:

1/2 can pumpkin (frozen in ice cube trays, so that's about 6-8 ice cubes)
1 c milk (I use rice milk but you can use any kind)
3 ice cubes
1/2 t cinnamon
1/8 t pumpkin pie spice
1/4 t salt
1/2 t vanilla
whatever sweetener you like (stevia is my choice)

Whirl it up in a really good blender.

Dennis asks me why I don't put greens in this. He puts greens in all his smoothies.
I tell him there is a time for greens, and there's a time for pumpkin. 
I still have my green smoothie everyday but this one to me is like an extra little treat. 
Love it! And it's loaded with Vitamin A to help keep us well this winter.

Make sure your pumpkin is frozen.
It makes all the difference.

Oh and on another note, 
have you seen this list of the 20 most popular passwords?
You better check this out and make sure yours is not on there.

That's disgusting! Some of these posts outlining your geriatric food habits need a Mature Audiences warning right up front...

Sounds good. Looks like I need to change some passwords.

That is funny about the greens...Dave was making a fruit smoothie this morning because we were out of greens and I said, just have a fruit smoothie today, but no, he had to add CABBAGE because that is what we it can have GREEN. Glad you don't put GREEN in your fun pumpkin one! The password sight was interesting and helpful too! you find such good stuff and share with us all...thank you!

Hey Richard, like Mom use to say, "Don't knock it till you try it." and "To each his own."

Scrapally~ So how did he like the cabbage? I've thought of trying that before but haven't yet.

Sounds yummy to me!


PS. That was interesting about the passwords.

Your pumpkin looks and sounds delicious. So, you take canned pumpkin and freeze it? The most popular passwords is interesting also. I would never have thought to do the number sequence, so I'm safe with my passwords.
