Pumpkin Smoothie and Pumpkin Pie Bran Muffin

I ate a wonderful snack... Pumpkin Smoothie and those fabuolous bran muffins in which I used = substitute pumpkin in place of applesauce and pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon.

I purchased a large can of pumpkin (3 1/2 Cups) and used 1 1/2 Cups for the muffins. With the leftover I froze in a ice cube tray (just perfect to fill 12 cubes).

The smoothie recipe...
I placed three frozen pumpkin cubes along with 2 regular ice cubes into my magic bullet cup along with 1/4 box lite silken tofu and water to fill 3/4 full. I added 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp (or more to taste) stevia, and 1/2 tsp xanthan gum. Mix until thickened. ENJOY!
