Yesterday while I was posting I had a ton of good ideas that I wanted to write about today; but I didn't make a note of them and now I've forgotten what they were. Nice huh?!

A while back someone requested my Pumpkin Smoothie recipe and I never got around to posting it, so instead of all the stuff I was planning to say yesterday and because it's now officially Fall and October, here it is:

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
3 small dates
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup plain canned pumpkin (or more)
1/2 banana
cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger (or pumpkin pie spice)
splash vanilla extract
ice cubes (maybe 1 cup)

If you're planning ahead of time, soak the dates in the soymilk overnight. Other than that, toss everything into the blender and blend it up! Change the quantities of items to match your thickness/pumpkinness preference.
