Chocolate Pecan Pie Smoothie

This morning, I came home from a run and wanted something sweet to cool off with. I had just seen a post from the rantings of an amateur chef about chocolate pecan pie. That sounded really delicious, but I couldn’t have pie at 9:00 in the morning… or could I?

I made this smoothie using the pecan pralines I bought yesterday to make pumpkin praline chocolate chip scones. The main body of the smoothie was chill chocolate, with a splash of cinnamon and crunchy pecans I fished out with a spoon. I like my smoothies to have some texture to them, with chunks of something interesting floating around. Some people may consider this weird, but they just haven’t tried it.

Here is the recipe for the chocolate pecan pie flavored smoothie.
