I consider myself somewhat challenged in the culinary arts. I would like to be a good cook and a gracious hostess, but my talents don’t seem to run in that direction. Nevertheless, occasionally I get lucky, and it has happened again today. A culinary home-run.
I’m trying to break a sugar addiction and today the craving has a wicked grip on me. (Blame the sumptuous pumpkin muffins I see at my favorite coffee shop every morning.) I need an antidote, and fast.
So in the spirit of the day, I scoured my cabinets for something I could concoct to soothe my sweet tooth. And oh boy, did I ever create a masterpiece, and I want to share this treat with all you goblins out there. It’s sure to become LifeArt Studio’s signature drink: the Pumpkin Smoothie. Here’s the recipe.
1/2 cup almond milk (or coconut milk)
1/2 cup of egg whites
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup of canned pumpkin
1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
1 scoop protein powder (I use Dr. Sara Gottfried’s Hormone Balance Supplement)
Blend like crazy, and enjoy!
Happy Halloween from LifeArt Studio!
