Frosty Fall Treat

If you live in the South, you know that when fall arrives, fall-like temperatures don't always come immediately. It is cool here at our house today, but will be back in the 80s by the end of the week. Summer just doesn't want to let go.

Still, we try for a fall-like mood. I haven't baked any pumpkin bread, yet, but will be making some soon. In the meantime, to cool down a bit, we enjoy this frosty pumpkin treat.

1/4 cup of sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
1/2 banana
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt (or plain--I always use vanilla)
3/4 cup of milk
a few shakes of pumpkin pie spice
4-6 ice cubes

Put all in blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy! This makes two fairly tall glasses of frosty pumpkin drink.


  1. That sounds like a good treat!! Like something one may buy from Starbucks! We have finally had a couple of coolish days here in eastern NC the past two days. But I think it's going to warm back up later this week.

  2. Sounds pretty good, Mary. I love pumpkin things, especially pumpkin rolls. We haven't had much of a fall yet. But today it was so cold and drizzly.
