http://beccajcampbell.com/writing/your-best-story/ Mom asked me last night to make her a pumpkin milkshake. She had a pumpkin frappe at Starbucks last week that she really enjoyed. This is the recipe that I came up with. We are eating Trim Healthy Mama style, so this would be a THM ‘S’. Sorry about the bad pictures. I am not a talented food photographer.

Pumpkin Shake (or Frappe)                (S)
1/2 c. cottage cheese
1 c. unsweetened almond milk (or cooled, strong coffee)
2 TBSP. whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
2 TBSP Truvia
3 scoops stevia (I used KAL brand stevia. It comes with a little scoop that I use. For frappe version, do an extra scoop)
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 or 2 pinches cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. glucomannan
2 TBSP pumpkin puree
Ice (roughly 1 – 2 cups)

Blend all your ingredients, except ice, together until fairly smooth. Add ice and blend until smooth. If you do not like strong flavors, try less spices to start with.

This is our Hereford heifer, Pumpkin. We got her a couple days ago. I thought it appropriate to include her in this post because of her name. 🙂
