This morning, I woke up late because I (again) went to bed later than planned so I made a smoothie to-go this morning to drink in the car.

In the smoothie:

  • 2/3 banana
  • 1/2 cup strawberry
  • 1/2 cup almond breeze
  • pinch of xanthum gum from Good Earth Natural Foods
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 2 splenda packets
  • 1 Tbsp of Krema natural peanut butter
  • Ice and water for volume
It was a little chillier this morning than it has been, so the smoothie made me a little cold.  Unless it is scorching hot outside, and I am sitting in the heat smoothies always make me cold.
Tonight at midnight (so technically tomorrow) the FINAL Harry Potter movie comes out!!  I am going with my sister and Brian to the movie tonight at an IMAX theater…I know, fancy.  Because I love themes and because I love making treats, I made some Harry Potter themed treats to share with you!
Pumpkin Pasties:
  • 1 Box Spiced Cake Mix
  • 1 Can 100% Pureed Pumpkin
  • 1 Can of Cream Cheese Frosting, or Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together the entire box of cake mix and the entire can of pumpkin until combined.  Drop the dough by spoonful onto an un-greased cookie sheet.  Place in the oven and bake for 10 min.  Allow to cool on wax paper before frosting.  Once cool, cut the cookies into the same size round shapes (I used the mouth of a white wine glass).  Then turn the cookies upside and frost their bottoms, and stick two together to make a sandwich!  These are the easiest cookies ever and make great non HP related treats too!
I am off to rest, since I will be watching Harry at midnight.  Don’t worry, I have another HP inspired recipe for later too!

  1. Tara I would love to know what “late” is to you. My alarm didn’t go off so I woke up 20 min before I had to leave this morning. I feel like you do more in the AM than I do in an entire day! 🙂
