Happy Halloween! I have a very special sponsor spotlight for all of you today.
Do you guys know Anita from Hungry Couple? Well, you should. Here’s why: Her philosophy regarding food is on point. She loves good food! What do you know, we have a lot in common. I love good food, too. Anita doesn’t believe in junk food, however, she does believe in delicious food made from scratch, like this pumpkin bread with cream cheese filling, and these peach crumb bars, or this lemon coffee cake (drool).
I refer to Anita as the Cocktail Queen, because any time I need a mixed beverage for a party, bonfire, or just to sip on while reading a good book, I can count on Anita to provide me with a delicious cocktail. She has a cocktail for every season. Fall? Try this apple pie martini. I did, and it was delicious. It tastes like a pie, but bites like a cocktail. Winter? Try this ultimate chocolate martini. It’s made with chilled hot cocoa, chocolate liqueur, and grated chocolate. I’d say it deserves it’s ultimate title. Spring? Can you say strawberry basil martini? Yum! Last but not least, summer? How about a peach martini made with fresh peach juice? The lady knows how to represent a cocktail. She even celebrated National Vodka Month and has a total of 52 cocktail recipes on her blog.
Since it’s fall, I felt compelled to choose one of Anita’s pumpkin recipes to make and feature. I had a hard time choosing one of her many pumpkin recipes, but after careful consideration, I decided on her pumpkin pie smoothie. There’s something about slurping my dessert through a straw that makes me happy.
This smoothie tastes exactly like the custard of an unbaked pumpkin pie, but without all the extra calories, as Anita’s recipe calls for greek yogurt and frozen bananas. It’s so good! I prefer my pumpkin pie without the crust, so this worked out in my favor.
