Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Disaster

Friday, November 16, 2012

So I was super excited to get the Spark People Cookbook. While browsing through, I stumbled across a recipe for a pumpkin pie smoothie. Now I LOVE pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie blizzards, shakes, etc are the bomb so I was super excited to try this.

It was horrible. The recipe called for a banana. I questioned it but I thought "eh, they know what they are doing." All I could taste was the stupid banana. I ate about four bites and threw the rest away. I'm going to try it again tomorrow but leave out the banana, add a little more pumpkin and a little more spice.

Worked third shift last night and have to be back to work second tonight (6 hours from now). Off to try to get some sleep!

    That's a shame about the banana. I hope it will taste better next time without the banana. Hope you were able to get some sleep before you went back to work.

    I hate when i take the time to try a new recipe and don't like it. i have found that bananas will take over the taste of most any smoothie and yet they always call for them. I think they make the smoothie thicker or something.

    Too bad about the banana! But we learn. For myself, I would have endured the banana anyway - I hate to waste food because from my mission trips I know too many people who go hungry. ..and I also have to budget very carefully. But if I try the recipe, I'll take it from you to omit the banana! Shel
