Oh snap! Do you know what today is by the way!? Day 5 of My Cleanse! Ahhhhhh yes! I have almost complete 5 days of raw. Whooo weeee. And it was easy as ..... No. It wasn't as easy as pie. Considering the fact I haven't been able to have any either. :/ BUT! On an uplifting note. I am quite the creative person and have had plenty of interesting, unique meal options during these 5 days. So I am thankful for that. I never got bored, if you will. Like today. I had a craving. For something specific. And I wasn't going to let it get me down or all wound up. Or at the point of failing. Coffee was calling my name as well, but I ignored it's annoying cries for me. So as you can see today I was feeling a little frisky.....but not to mention, spontaneous.
Story begins.... I ran into my kitchen. I searched and searched for any and all ingredients related to my craving. I placed all ingredients into blender and then magic happened. Voila! a light orange colored Smothie appears! Story ends. But what kind of smoothie you ask?
Why a Pumpkin Almond Butter Cup Smoothie, of course! ;)
And here you go guys and gals! This smoothie is all yours. I was stunned! I'll be honest, I've never made a smoothie with pumpkin in it, so I was a bit hesitant. But oh man! I'll these wasted years! I look forward to the pumpkin smoothie future ;)
