Best Smoothie I Ever Made

This post is a quickie. Just had to tell about the smoothie I threw together tonight. The Fella ran his first 10K tonight on a whim and he requested a potassium smoothie to help stave off the Charlie horses (leg cramps) that have been waking him up. So I whipped up this using what I had on hand and it was so freakin delicious!

Peach Banana Smoothie

1c. milk of choice
1c. 0 % Greek yogurt
1 frozen banana
1 Ohio peach (I did not peel this)
4-6 ice cubes
1 t vanilla extract
1 T honey
1/4 t stevia powder

That’s it. This was honestly the best tasting smoothie I’ve ever made!

Bourbon Pumpkin Bread

My Fella loves bourbon and he’s made me a fan too.  Mostly though, I just love food made with booze, especially desserts!  I made this recipe for Pumpkin Bread last fall with my students to sell at an Election Day bake sale.  I’ve since tweaked the recipe to make it Whiteout friendly and reduced the oil.  Oh yeah, and I included bourbon!  The addition of the bourbon was actually inspired by this recipe for Bourbon Spiked Banana Bread on Sassy Radish who does a lot of cooking with bourbon.

This is a super easy recipe and with all of the yummy spices, the flavor actually gets better a few days after baking.  This recipe yields 3 loaves so it is great for gift giving.  I love to eat this sliced, toasted and topped with either butter, cream cheese or all natural peanut butter.  Great for breakfast, brunch or even dessert.
