Pumpkin Gingerbread Smoothie

168 comments

IMG_3310

A Long Weekend Hangover (LWH): describes the sum of unpleasant physiological and psychological effects following a holiday long weekend, such as Thanksgiving. The LWH is especially hard to recover from if you were drinking red wine like juice, eating Pumpkin Pie Brownies like vegetables, and singing Moves Like Jagger 14 times during a 3 hour drive.

Hangover symptoms may persist for several days after pumpkin pie was last consumed. Scratchy Throat Syndrome (otherwise known as singing Moves Like Jagger 14 times), may require strange green drinks for relief.

Repeat as necessary.

The Long Weekend Hangover may also be present in animals, most notably the cantankerous feline species. Hibernation under dining room tables may result for up to 72 hours. Cat treats, when left on the chair but not hand fed, are encouraged if not essential for total recuperation. Do not disturb feline or Stink Eye may occur.

For complete recovery from LWH, ingesting pumpkin first thing in the morning is necessary or withdrawal symptoms may persist.

Recommended Dosage: Pumpkin Gingerbread in smoothie form until symptoms dissipate or until the next long weekend, whichever comes first.

Prognosis…improved and likely to recover.

If you could not have banana, what would you do, just leave it out or substitute it with something else? And if the latter, what would you recommend?

15 Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit October 12, 2011

Looks delicious! I did something similar a couple of weeks ago and topped it off with a bit of coconut whipped cream. mm-mm. I can relate to the LWH, my gosh it’s hard to get back into the swing of things.
I ended up making the pumpkin pie we were talking about last week AND included avocado! I was so nervous putting it in the processor, but I did it anyways and it turned out perfectly, mind you it is no bake. Just posted the recipe today, if you’re interested: http://www.healthfulpursuit.com/2011/10/no-bake-pumpkin-tarts/

I think I must be the only person who hasn’t heard that “Moves Like Jagger” song! The curse of listening to too much Pandora and Spotify custom playlists (I’m on a Ben Folds kick now), I suppose. Also, that smoothie looks delicious! Makes me wish I was home instead of at work… :(

Re: “Moves like Jagger”/ Cats with attitudes

Arguing with my cat this morning. He insists the words are “moves like jaguar”! Pulled up the lyrics on my computer to prove him wrong, and he says “I can’t read the screen without my glasses, and unfortunately my glasses are broken”. I’m thinking someone is just a sore loser.

Are you still doing the no-gluten thing? If so you want to be sure to get gluten-free oats. Just saying because a there’s a lot of misinformation about there about oats being gluten-free, but unless they are certified, they can have gluten from cross-contamination. So be careful!

OOOOOH!! You just inspired me to make your squash vegan mac & cheeze this week using pumpkin instead of butternut squash, can’t wait!! I am also loving your recipes … I can’t have ANY kind of dairy because of allergies and love vegan recipes … I’m about 60% vegan I think. Thank you very much for sharing your story, very inspiring!!, and the FOOD!!! It’s hard to get my husband to like non-dairy food, but your blog has helped so much!! He absolutely loves the Pumpkin Gingerbread with Spiced Buttercream … he couldn’t even tell it was vegan, that’s a feat unto itself!!! Thank you so much!!

I’m definitely going to try this smoothie tomorrow. Also, was wondering which green monster is in the picture above, it looks thicker than the other green monster recipes you’ve posted and was wondering what the recipe is because it looks delectable!! Please share.

Thanks!!!

I am still recovering from an extra-LWH – I don’t work on Tuesdays so that means long weekends always get extended by one day! In fact, I don’t work Thursdays either so I win no matter what day the long-weekend falls on :)

On a pumpkin related note – I made your pumpkin cinnamon rolls on this particular long weekend and my family and I thank you! It took most of the day but the smell in the house was awesome – I even told my husband he wasn’t allowed to cook the salmon is originally planned for supper because I didn’t want the smell to go away!

Hi Angela, I’ve never had a pumpkin smoothie before and I’m a little scared to try it! I’ve seen them around… maybe I should give them a shot. This one certainly looks intriguing!

I had a question for you as a fellow blogger — I’m curious as to why your posts don’t have date stamps. I see them when they are thumbnails and I’m scrolling through the archives, but not in the full view of a post, as in if I click a post that is linked from another post I can’t see the date when it was written. Is there any reason for that? Playing detective I’m guessing the first commenter is writing on the same day, but I thought maybe there was a reason for omitting the date in the post itself. Thanks so much, love the blog!

What a great smoothie! I think I’ll have that as my dessert tonight! I made your Pumpkin Butter last night and it turned out great! It seems your Pumpkin Butter is all over the blog world! Thanks for the recipes!

LWH…love it!:) Also, love your recipe for success! Going to try this this morning for bkfast! Might add some spinach…just because I have a hard time having a smoothie w/o spinach these days!

Need … pumpkin … now! I made this right away and yum,yum. This is the best! It’s a healthy pumpkin pie in a glass! My 9-year-old also gives it high marks. I wish we had all day to just make your recipes. Haven’t found anything I don’t like!

Pumpkin is my happiness during fall season, and this smoothie looks amazingly good! Definitely trying it here.
Now Angela, I know that is not the topic of the post, but your “green drink” picture looks so creamy and delicious, would you mind sharing with me? I love green smoothies!
Thanks
Ana

Hi Angela,
I couldn’t help but laugh at the picture of your cat. I have a Bengal as well and mine loves to sleep on the dinning room chairs under the table. There are days when I can not find him and realize that I didn’t check his other sleeping spot ;0)

P.S. What a great remedy for a LWH!

Hey Kaitlyn, Thanks for your comment! I’m glad you are enjoying the recipes (and smoothie!).

Angela, I had some leftover pumpkin from making your delicious Pumpkin Gingerbread with Spiced ‘Buttercream’ (first time, and the loaf was sooo mosit and flavorful!), and was saving it for your addicting Pumpkin Pie Banana Chunk Cookies until I came across this smoothie. I have not met a recipe of yours that I didn’t adore. I am normally a cereal girl, but made this smoothie this morning and it is now in my top 3 smoothie recipes. I couldn’t believe how thick and doughy the consistency was, and the flavor is spot-on with a pumpkin pie. I can’t wait to make it again! Now to get myself to the store to stock-up again……

Thanks for your feedback Hayley! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed the recipes :) I think the smoothie is one of my top 3 too.

This smoothy looks so yummy (as do your other smoothies) but do you think this has enough staying power to drink as a breakfast? I find that the more ingredients I add to a smoothie it’s very easy to clock in at a lot of calories. I’m one of those people who want a smoothie but I don’t want to add the 3 T of peanut butter when your adding so many other things. Does that make sense? lol

I had it for breakfast and found that with the protein powder it was quite filling. I was fine until lunch. You can always modify it based on your needs though!

147 Diana October 17, 2011

You said with the protein powder it was quite filling. There’s no protein powder in the recipe. Do you typically add protein powder to all your smoothies, even if it’s not listed in the recipe? How much do you add? Vanilla or plain?

Yes, yes, YES! That would be my internal monologue while drinking/savoring this. Thank you for your advice on soaking the seeds and oats. Definitely giving that a whirl today (no pun intended). :)

I’ve been making this all week as an oatmeal! (well monday was smoothie form). It’s helping me get back on track to healthy eating, and mmm is it delish and filling in the now chilly mornings!

157 Elesha @ Skinnyfat Girls October 24, 2011

Pretty much anything with pumpkin is going to make me drool over it. We at Skinnyfat have gotten into the spirit with chocolate chunk pumpkin bars and pumpkin brownies. I think I’m going to make this next because it looks and sounds fantastic!

Hi,

I am allergic to bananas and I believe most (if not all) of the shakes have banana in them. Any ideas of what I can do to replace the banana? There is just nothing like a banana and leaving it out just doesn’t do the trick!

This looks delicious. What is the crunchy stuff on top of the smoothie?

I think if my memory serves me correctly it was a crumbled ginger cookies (recipe is on my blog somewhere)

This was my breakfast yesterday – sooo yummy! Definitely making it again this week with the leftover pumpkin I have in my fridge :)

165 Tanya October 31, 2013

I made this like it was going out of style back when you posted it in 2011. Then I got pregnant and got too lazy to cook much, then I had a baby and really stopped cooking almost altogether. But I’m happy to say that I’m back to making this after an almost two-year hiatus. My little girl is now 15 months old and she loves this smoothie, too!

166 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 31, 2013

Congrats on your baby! (Or are they called toddlers after 1 year – I’m clueless hah). So glad you both enjoy the smoothie :)

167 Dev December 16, 2013

Hi Angela,

I have to say… I truly did not enjoy this recipe. I’m usually a big fan of your recipes (and smoothies in general) but the consistency here was just subpar. The chia seeds didn’t expand and tasted like toes. But keep up the good work! I loved your pumpkin mac’n cheeze sauce as well as your butternut squash mac’n cheeze sauce.

Love,
Dev
