Pumpkin Coma

Wow. Let me just say it again, wow. I just drank about a 32 oz pumpkin smoothie. I meant to only drink 16 oz, but it was so good I went back for the second half. Now I'm going to have to roll myself around like a big orange pumpkin for the rest of the night - I'm stuffed! My friend posted the recipe on facebook the other day, and I knew I had to make it, and soon! I'll share the recipe with you too, but beware - I only recommend making it when you have someone to share it with, otherwise you'll end up drinking the whole thing like I did and putting yourself in a coma too!

1 cup pumpkin puree (homemade is of course best but organic canned pumpkin will do in a pinch)
1 frozen banana
1 cup coconut milk (I didn't have any coconut milk, so I just used 2 cups almond milk)
1 cup almond milk
Handful of pecans
2 tablespoons agave or a sprinkle of stevia
A little bit of cinnamon, salt, and vanilla, all to taste
  • Whip it all up in a blender and share with your favorite person in the world. They'll love you for it!
