Pimped Out Pumpkin Smoothie

Hey dolls,

I hope you are having a fabulous Thursday! I have the day off and I can’t decide what to do! Not because there aren’t enough options, but because there are in fact too many things that I’d like to do!

In the La Tortilla Wrap went:

  • Queso laughing cow
  • TJ’s Apple Cranberry Butter
  • Roasted Broccoli
  • TJ’s Meatless Meatballs

Is it just me or do those balls look like real meat? (TWSS-too far?) I literally went back to the freezer and checked that they were meatless when I was eating! All wrapped up and warmed in the George Foreman my own personal Panini maker!

Freakin’ delicious!

My son, Adam, also wanted me to show his snack plate because, and I quote, “I’m such a healthy eater.” *huge grin on his face* I love that he loves eating healthy!

Unknown amounts of cereal and dark chocolate were also consumed late last night.

So, after seeing “Pumpkin Pie Smoothies” on everyone and their Mom’s blogs, I decided it was time to jump on the bandwagon and get crack-a-lackin.

  • Pimped Out Pumpkin Smoothie
    1 ½ frozen Bananas
  • 1/3 c. Pumpkin Puree
  • ¼ c. No salt-added Cottage Cheese
  • Lots of Pumpkin Pie Spice

More Pumpkin Pie Spice (This is the key!)

  • Chia Seeds
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ½ t. Guar Gum
  • ½ t. Xanthan Gum

Blended all up in my Vitamix Magic Bullet. I’m sorry Bullet, I do love you. I just have Vitamix envy.

Topped with MORE Pumpkin Pie Spice and Cacao Nibs!

This is one bandwagon that I definitely should have jumped on sooner. Sooner, as in like back in 2005! Expect to see this again. And again.

This smoothie is pimped out for no other reason than I thought the name was cute! But with the addition of cottage cheese, it does have a little protein punch.

Today’s agenda is not yet decided! But as a little guideline (more for me than for you):

  • Get some sort of sweat going.
  • Put back all furniture (yep, haven’t done this since getting my carpets cleaned!)
  • Get more honey crisps.
  • Walk the pupperoni.
  • Go to Express because I have a coupon! They suck me in with those coupons, which I’m certain is exactly their plan. Oh well!

Have a great day,
