Pumpkin Spice Smoothie (low carb)
Rachel had her wisdom teeth removed today, and couldn't eat or drink anything this morning. I wanted to be sensitive to that but also have something nourishing, so I made a smoothie.
I found this recipe last year, and I liked it. I sweeten it to taste with a sweetener that doesn't trigger the glycemic index. For this I used xylitol*.
The recipe is so simple -
1/4 cup of pumpkin
1/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup of water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice**
1/2 cup ice
Put it all in the blender and mix it up!
It's very tasty!
You can easily make this recipe non low carb by using regular sugar.
*xylitol is toxic to dogs. If you have dogs that get into your treats you may want to use a different sweetener.
** I make this with just cinnamon.
