First off, Happy World Vegetarian Day. Secondly, let's celebrate the entire month with one better; the return of Vegan MoFo! This is bound to be a busy but fun and delicious month. I hope to still comment as much as possible, and read as many vegan blogs as possible, and bookmark lots of cool stuff, and "meet" new vegan people, while not eating entirely too much or burning myself out on blogging.
In the vegan community spirit, I decided my MoFo theme would be other bloggers' recipes. I will be making one meal a day using a recipe online.
I considered not including bloggers who were published, but that would cut out some great folks like Hannah Kaminsky, Isa Moskowitz, and Dynise Balcavage, to name a few. Instead, I'm recreating recipes at least found online by people who have a strong internet presence - that way, if you are so inclined, you can recreate the recipe too.
Anyway, I am excited and let's get started with a cool smoothie while it's still kind of warm but with a perfect for fall flavor. This is Oh She Glows' Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.
I'm pretty sure that Angela is not a new name for most of you but is perhaps one of those bloggers who you see post so many (too many!) delicious sounding recipes, and they all pile up but you never get to them. This is a quick, easy recipe and so, so tasty. A great place to start from a really talented lady.
To be honest, it was a bit thicker than I usually drink my smoothies, and the half-banana didn't quite make the smoothie sweet enough but this was still really good. I upped the spices, and added more ice and extra molasses! Topped with coconut, this was really filling. It held me over for about 4 1/2 hours, which is usually unheard of with a smoothie.
I will definitely be returning to this one.
