It’s finally feeling like fall in Nashville and I couldn’t be happier! I’m embracing it by enjoying walks in the cool, crisp mornings, having oatmeal for breakfast (because hot oatmeal in the summer is not appealing), and eating all the pumpkin things.
How are you enjoying fall where you live?
That’s why today’s recipe features a fall favorite, pumpkin. I’m definitely one of those people who jumps on the #pumpkineverything bandwagon as soon as September hits. To clarify, I’m talking real pumpkin not the super-fake pumpkin flavored stuff.
There’s nothing but the good stuff in this smoothie bowl. This recipe turned out even better than I expected on the first try, which is always exciting. The flavor, consistency, and variety of textures are on point and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do. Next time, I’m going to make a larger serving 🙂
Fall for Figs
Did you know there are two seasons for figs? The first season is in early June and the second season runs from August through October. I used black mission figs in this recipe but you could also use Brown Turkey variety or Green Kadota figs. I found these figs at a small, locally-owned grocery store but also saw some at my farmer’s market this week! Figs are a good source of potassium, manganese and dietary fiber. Keep fresh figs in a shallow bowl in your refrigerator for up to two to three days. When ready to use, rinse with cold water and remove stem. Figs are like candy to me so I just pop a couple when I need a sweet treat.
The kind folks over at Kura provided me with packets of their protein smoothie powder—a gluten-free, dairy protein smoothie starter with 26 vitamins and minerals and over 4 billion probiotics! This is not the first time I’ve tried Kura and as I previously shared, their protein powder doesn’t taste weird like other protein powders I’ve tried.
Have you tried any of the Kura products?
