Pumpkin Spice Latte Smoothie and WIAW


I am completely in love with fall.  I think this year since it was so hot for so long, the cooler temperatures have made me bounce right into full blow fall mode. I alright want to buy pumpkins and it isn't even October.  I am trying to hold back a bit longer on the pumpkin buying and instead relying on my kitchen time to incorporate Fall.



This is no Starbucks latte but it is a great day to start the day.  If you need it a bit more sweet add some honey, maple syrup, or agave.

Lunch was leftovers from the Shrimp and Rice Casserole dish packed up and eaten in front of my computer.  I love when I can pack up dinner from the night before and have a nice warm lunch with little effort. I don't love when I have so much work it requires me to go non-stop from 7:30-5:30.  My healthy habit of being outside didn't come into play today.

Snacks were carrot sticks, peach, and apple throughout the day.

Now if you thought lunch was healthy just wait for dinner.

We go pizza takeout.  Sausage, onions, peppers, and garlic.  Sometimes life calls for a little pizza.


What did you eat today?

  8. Your smoothie sounds awesome! I actually tried the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and was sorely disappointed. It was so sweet! I ended up having to dilute it with more coffee :( Yours however sounds just right.

    1. Next time say one pump. Typically they use three pumps of syrup. You can adjust according to preference. I find one pump is just enough for the flavor but keeps to sweetness to a minimum.
