At a recent food expo, one of our pumpkin lovers shared her favorite recipe with me. Last night I was in the mood for pumpkin, but all I could remember were the ingredients for the pumpkin shake. Before I knew it, the blender was out and an entire can of Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin, coconut milk, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon were churning furiously in the wonderful glass contraption. It wasn’t quite sweet enough for me, so I added some French vanilla yogurt and a little more vanilla. I poured the whole mixture into a mason jar and left it to chill overnight.
This morning for breakfast I had a little glass. The recipe still needs to be perfected, but it was still pretty darn good. I was so energized that I almost didn’t need any coffee…almost. I made my best time yet on my morning bike ride to work. And even though, cartwheels have gone out of fashion for grown-ups, I still feel like I could do a round of them in the office.
Do you have a favorite recipe?
