Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Are you sick of seeing pumpkin yet? Because guess what? I made another pumpkin recipe…Sorry, I’m not sorry.

When I got home from work on Friday night all I wanted was breakfast. I made myself a dippy egg, pepper jack cheese and “bacon” sandwich thin. I wasn’t satisfied so I offered to make smoothies for Adam and I while we watched a movie. Then I begged he go buy whipped cream for said smoothies.

Nothing like a piece of pumpkin pie in liquid form (with 3/4 less the calories!)

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie 

Ingredients (makes 2)

  • 1 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • 1 tbsp sugar free syrup
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 packets of stevia
  • xanthan gum to thicken
  • 1 graham cracker sheet (divided)
  • whipped cream
Directions
  • Add first 8 ingredients to blender.
  • Blend til combined (1 minute)
  • Add 1/2 sheet of graham cracker to blender with xanthan gum to thicken
  • Blend well.
  • Pour into glasses

  • Top with whipped cream, crushed graham cracker and a tiny more pumpkin pie spice

  • Serve with a spoon bc it’s thick!

Deliciousness.

Last night we had date night

We try not to repeat restaurants because there are SO many to choose from. We went to a place called Court Street in Hoboken.

I really don’t like giving restaurants bad reviews because I’m a big fan of local businesses but honestly – this place has some work to do. Sangria was wine and water (no fruit – best part!), my stuffed shrimp was all breading, carrots were just boiled, baked potato had no seasoning and our dessert was actually bitter. Robert Irvine needs to rescue them ASAP!

It’s football Sunday so you know where to find us!

QUESTIONS: Have you ever been to a restaurant and every meal you had wasn’t good?

Winning Weekend

Hope you all had a great weekend! It went by way too fast but that seems to be the norm these days as it’s already mid September and I feel like I was just here a couple of weeks ago…

This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunrise

It made me feel better about the weekend ending.

Our weekend was great as always. I’m a huge football fan and the Redskins played the Giants (the team Adam likes) on Sunday so I threw spicy turkey chili in the crockpot

got our game gear on

and watched the redskins spank the giants bootay!

I did feel bad for my boyfriend so I made him some fresh brownies and added some fro-yo on top.

Good food is the way to a mans heart! Remember that ladies 🙂

Before I served up dessert we ate our bowls of chili with a hefty scoop of plain greek yogurt and some healthy Honey Cornbread

I make my cornbread with applesauce instead of oil, almond milk instead of regular milk and egg whites instead of a whole egg. I also drizzle some agave nectar over the muffins before they bake.

They turn out perfect! Here is the recipe i use.

Sorry, I got so excited about Sunday I forgot to mention Saturday.

We woke up early and headed to a charity event I had set-up at work.

I’m so lucky to have a supportive boyfriend!

Since he woke up early to go into work with me on a Saturday I agreed to attending the italian street festival

Adam loves pictures.

He played lots of games

and ate lots of food

Sicilian steak sandwich and swedish fish slushie! I had a few bites of both – we shared wings earlier and I was still stuffed.

Things we didn’t indulge on:

Fried Oreos.

I’m usually all about the crazy sweets but this honestly grossed me out. Anyone ever had one??

We headed to the mall to find me some boots and became ravenous while shopping. What’s it about shopping that makes you so hungry? Everywhere had a line but Johnny Rockets…joy. Since we were trying to be healthy after our lunch I ordered a salad

Romaine, dried cranberries, almond slivers and grilled chicken

But I guess Adam didn’t get the healthy memo..

eek. That boy loves his meat.

Since I was so healthy at dinner I wanted some fro-yo

I can finally say I’ve been to 16 handles! I think it may be my favorite fro-yo place so far… Now for the questions of the day – Can you guess which one is mine? What is the name of your favorite place to get fro-yo?
