em Does Pumpkin

This morning, I decided to finally try the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie that RunningPhierce posted last week. Sorry in advance!

I guess I should have read the part of the recipe where it says this beverage is a smoothie. Boy, this was not my cup of tea. I think it may have been the expectation of a protein shake consistency…that or the poor substitution choice of Java Flavored protein powder. Either way, not for me, but would be good for you smoothie fans.

However, I did discover this amazeballs pumpkin cookie recipe that uses OATS and PUMPKIN PUREE. This was instant YUM. I subbed out the white sugar for Stevia, added Pumpkin Pie Spice, because, well Pumpkin Pie Spice is amazing in and of itself, and nixed the cranberries. The cookies were surprisingly moist, and deliciously yummy….and only 108 calories per dollop of perfection.

I think my next conquest might be Pumpkin Ravioli, kind of like the Healthy Choice frozen meals, although it sounds like a daunting task.

What are your favorite pumpkin flavored items?

Hope you don’t have a case of the Mondays!
