I was supposed to race the Xterra Western Championship this weekend, but I didn’t. However, I did make my Pumpkin Pie Spinach Smoothie! Since I promised not to ramble when on the topic of food, put this stuff on your grocery list:

Pumpkin Pie Spinach Smoothie ingredients.

Canned Pumpkin Puree, Almond Milk, Maple Syrup, Molasses, Vanilla Extract, Ground Flax, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Banana, & Frozen Spinach

Grab your blender and pour a cup of Almond Milk in it. Think you’re done with liquids? You, my friend, are wrong. Water it down with a quarter cup of Water:

Eh, Anywhere Between 1.25 to 1.5-Cups Is Cool

Add a Tablespoon of Ground Flax for fiber and keep your hunger pangs at bay:

That Tablespoon has more work to do! Add Molasses. Then Maple Syrup. Grade B. It’s better. Trust Me. No need to use different Tablespoons for everything; all the ingredients are friends:

Molasses, Meet Almond Milk & Ground Flax

I added Hemp Protein, but more importantly, make a Banana swan dive in there:

3… 2… 1… Jump!

Somehow I forgot to document adding the Pumpkin – pretty dumb considering this is a Pumpkin Pie Spinach Smoothie. Anyways, add a half cup of pumpkin puree. Then, add a generous Teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice:

Everyone Appreciates A Bit Of Generosity

Last, but not least, add half a cup of Frozen Spinach to make the smoothie look nasty:

Where Did Everything Go? I Clean As I Go!

You know what your blender likes. Turn it on:

Oh Yeah! 😉

Beginning To Look Nasty

Ta-da:

Pumpkin Pie Spinach Smoothie.

Looks Nasty, Tastes Great

But wait! There’s still goodness in the blender! Get a Spatula (not optional):

Seriously, Spatula That Goodness Into Your Mouth!

Lastly, do the dishes. No one likes a dirty kitchen:
