Best Fall Recipe: Banana Pumpkin Smoothie

My friend Anna once recommended eating canned pumpkin for a semi-sweet, low-calorie snack. I took it a step further with this amazingly yummy, nutritious and--best of all--filling smoothie. Some context: This summer I bought a hand blender and since then, I've been crazy for the smoothies.
  • Ingredients: 1/3 to a 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin (The more pumpkin you use, the more intense the flavor. I use a 1/2 cup.)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • Trader Joe's pumpkin pie spice (to taste)
Just blend together and enjoy!

I'm Back!

Well, sort of. It so happens that freelancing may be even more consuming than being on staff at a publication, so I probably won't be blogging here very much. HOWEVER, I will be offering analysis on fashion and retail news at The Fashion Beat. Be sure to follow me there! xoLauren
