I looked at the forecast this morning.

90 degrees! In October!

Where is fall? My jeans want to know. My boots are tapping on their boxes, begging to come out. Even my jackets are looking a little forlorn, sagging at the shoulders on the hangers.

It looks like we have another warm spell upon us in my part of the world, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy autumn inspired flavors. Just when I thought I’ve figured out every possible way to enjoy pumpkin butter, I found one more. And it’s perfect for a day like today.

Pumpkin Butter Smoothies! Yes, that’s right – blend it into a cool and creamy and very autumny (That is a word, right? Well, it should be.) smoothie. I did add sprouted pumpkin seeds for extra protein, so that makes it a little more healthy, right? The truth is, it tastes more like dessert. Drizzled with honey and sprinkled with crushed candied pecans, it’s like pumpkin pie in a cup.

    Made this for lunch with regular milk, didn’t add honey as the pumpkin butter I had was very sweet. I also added a splash of coffee i had leftover from breakfast–yum!
