Family Smoothies With Frozen Nectarines & Pumpkin Pie Spice

IMG_6807

Have you seen the bags of frozen sliced peaches and nectarines at Trader Joe’s? They are a nice change from my usual go-to ingredients. Sometimes I need just a little more sweetness and some tartness to complete what I’m blending into my smoothie. I made these two smoothies during my next-day prep last night and I was really pleased with how smooth and balanced they turned out. There is not any one distinct flavor, including the pumpkin pie spice and banana. Both have a lightly creamy texture. The kids’ smoothie somehow tasted like a strawberry milkshake!

Baked Potato Night Done Right

Baked Potato Night Done Right

O is for October and all things orange as far as I'm concerned! The beautiful leaves changing, pumpkins, carrots, sweet potatoes...mmmm. Can you believe how many years I spent microwave "baking" my russets and sweets whenever we had baked potato night?
