When the pumpkin lattes come into season at Starbucks, my mom loves to get them. She’s always kind of depressed when they go out of season again. I don’t drink coffee or anything like that, so I can’t say I know what all the fuss is about. But I still wanted to get into the spirit of fall with some kind of pumpkin drink. So I decided to make a chocolate pumpkin smoothie this morning for part of my breakfast.
I was afraid it wouldn’t taste very sweet, but it turned out perfectly balanced. It’s sort of simple, yet also interesting and complex. And the smell is reminiscent of fresh-baked cookies on a lazy autumn afternoon.
Chocolate Pumpkin Delight
- 1 banana
- 4-6 fresh strawberries (chop off leaves and cut each strawberry in half)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Yoplait chocolate mousse style yogurt
- 2 tbsps Grandma Hoerner’s Pumpkin Butter
- 5-6 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in blender. Blend until ice is crushed and all ingredients are blended.
Take a moment to inhale that fall smell- mmmmm…..
