Did somebody say PUMPKIN!!! I am obsessed with pumpkin and anything with cinnamon on it. This time of year so many People get so excited about pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks but it gives me a serious headache. Maybe it's the fake sugary syrup they use.
I have been drinking golden milk from time to time. It is tumeric milk with spices. I thought, why not add some pumpkin to the mix and create a thicker smoothie. As my tween would say, OMGEEEEEEEE.
I use this daily tumeric powder from whole foods. In my book even more cinnamon is required so I dump large quantities, ok fine like maybe and extra few teaspoons. I add 1/4 cup pumpkin and toss in my ninja bullet with ice and almond milk. After blended I personally stir in 2 drops of cinnamon essential oil. I told you I have a love affair with real (not artificial creepy sickenly sweet cinnamon flavoring) so this extra boost just makes this perfect in my book. Of course for me it has to be Young Living's cinnamon vitality oil. Plus I love the fat buster effects real cinnamon offers by lowering your blood sugars naturally. This is true, I don't make this stuff up. Cinnamon as a real spice offers some crazy helpful health benefits and the fact that I want to bathe in it works for me.
