Through my participation in Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program, I received this Tervis Tumbler at no cost. Though I’ll admit the first beverage it held was Atwater's Vanilla Java Porter, the next was this Pumpkin-Banana-Coconut Smoothie I made for breakfast yesterday.
I’m not usually a smoothie-for-breakfast kind of girl but the warm weather inspired me so I popped open one of my coveted cans of pumpkin and whipped one up. It hit the spot – refreshing yet filling and deliciously reminiscent of pumpkin pie but with a twist.
- 1 c milk (I used combination of unsweetened almond and skim)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 c pumpkin puree
- 2 T shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 t pumpkin pie spice
- 2 ice cubes
- 2 packets stevia sweetener (or sugar… or you can omit all together for a less sweet drink)
- cinnamon, for topping
Add all ingredients to Magic Bullet tall cup and blend until smooth (or use blender/food processor/whatever you have) top with cinnamon.
I am loving this tumbler. It seems to keep my drinks nice and cold. It will be getting lots of use – and I’ll let you know when I try a hot drink in it!
