Chocolate Almond Butter Pumpkin SmoothieWaste not want not.

Sometimes I just want to eat something different. Aaaand sometimes I also just want to use up all the extra little things in the pantry…

Sometimes those two things don’t mix very well. But for this Chocolate Almond Butter Pumpkin Smoothie, they did.

I came up with the base of this smoothie recipe while on vacation at my in-laws. It was one of those times when you just need a smoothie, you know? Haha. Anyway, I raided the pantry for things that needed to be used up and came up with some chocolate almond butter, pumpkin puree, and coconut milk. That’ll do, eh?

It actually did. 🙂

A little healthy redo.

Since then I’ve remade this smoothie using things I usually have on hand, since I don’t buy chocolate almond butter (though it sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?). I’ve substituted nut butter, honey, and cocoa powder for that. Cheaper, and I can control the sugar. And it’s just as delicious!

Chocolate Almond Butter Pumpkin SmoothieA not-so-strange combo.

Chocolate Almond Butter Pumpkin Smoothie. It might sound like a strange flavor combo, but I love it. Ever since starting the GAPS diet, I’ve had to get used to eating whatever I could handle, no matter the combo. And two things I handle very well? Nut butters, and squash.

After getting to stage 3 of the diet, I was able to add these in. And I did – in abundance! I pretty much ate Nut Butter Squash Pancakes every day for breakfast for months, and had them for snacks, as well!

Of course, I love those two flavors by themselves, especially in the form of muffins or pie (pumpkin), and fudge or blondies (nut butters). But they really do taste good together! Especially when you add in cocoa…
