Does the thought of drinking an icy cold smoothy on a July winter morning leave you shivering? Want a yummy healthy breakfast that can be whipped up in a few minutes? How about a warm smoothie with soothing sweet honey, cinnamon and ginger flavours? Then give this truly comfort food for a cold midweek morning a try. This delectable drink was made as I had some left-over pumpkin from the weekend’s pumpkin soufflé. Not a bad way to get rid of left-overs, I would say.
Time: Less than 10 minutes to prepare. Serves: One
1/2 cup of pumpkin (steamed)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp honey (or more if you prefer it sweeter)
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- Place everything into a blender jug and blend untill smooth and frothy
- Add mixture to a small sauce pan and gently heat through without boiling.
- Pour into your favourite large mug and enjoy with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
