Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie Made with Coconut Milk with Cinnamon and Nutmeg to Make it Festive. Make Blueberry Syrup at Home to Add to the Smoothie
Is it ok to blame the pumpkin smoothie for being so addictive?
I don’t care, I am blaming it for being so irresistible.
Its all the nutmeg and cinnamon that just puts me in a happy place and I can’t stop drinking it.
For this recipe, I made my own blueberry syrup, but, you can get store bought ones that are really good. When I made my Tropical Smoothie, I used Torani’s syrups. They make DELICIOUS natural syrups like this (affiliate link) blueberry one.
If I am making pumpkin recipes already, that must mean summer is over, right? I can’t believe that it will be Halloween soon.
Before we talk about this pumpkin smoothie, can I take a short diversion?
It has to do with my summer reading list. I had a list of 15 books that I wanted to read this summer. They included classics like the (affiliate link) Hunchback of Notre Dame and (affiliate link) For Whom The Bell Tolls by Hemingway.
Reading these 2 books are some of my favorite ways to enjoy a blissful summer. They may not be the typical summer reading books, but, they are engrossing page turners. I hadn’t read them in a long time, so, these three sweltering months would be a great time to read them again.
Do you know how many of these fifteen books I managed to read?
Zero, zilch, nada, not a one!!
I honestly don’t know where the summer has gone. The reading was always on the back of my mind and I kept telling myself that I will get to the books “later this week”.
“Later this week” never came. Something always came up like cleaning the house
….or going to sit by the pool
….or I need to take a nap!
Procrastination is now my middle name!
As the fall season begins and I work on more pumpkin recipes like this vegan pumpkin soup, I wonder how many times I am going to tell myself that I will get to a task, “later this week”?
I think I need to write a book about the art of procrastination! I will get on that right away!!
…..or later this week.
What book was on your must-read list this summer?
