This isn’t really like a pumpkin pie blizzard. But I want one REALLY.FREAKING.BAD so this will have to suffice. Work with me here.

Sorry I was so depressively intense yesterday. But I have to have those moments. And I know some of my readers were like, “OMG Juli, you are like, so annoying. Stop complaining. #firstworldproblems.” I get it. I understand. But based on the number of comments I got on that blog post yesterday, A LOT of people go/have gone through the same sh*t. So THANK YOU if you left a comment of advice or just to say you understand. Acne is frustrating. And stupid. I remember the days when I ate bread and felt like sh*t…but I had no acne. Blasphemy.

I need to catch you up with my life though. I feel like I haven’t talked to you in forever. Last week was kind of a lazy week. It was almost like a vacation. You know how I know that? Because one day, while I cooked, I watched Pretty Woman. Then after I cooked, I watched Pretty Woman…again. Then I watched the Sex and the City movie. And cried. I don’t know what’s worse, watching Pretty Women twice in one day, or crying during the scene where Big leaves Carrie at the alter. You think I have issues, don’t you?


You know what movie everyone will say I have issues for loving? Twilight. But I do. Love Twilight, that is. I FREAKING LOVE Twilight. And I get soooooo sick of people rolling their eyes or scoffing when I tell them that I love the books and loved the movies. People just love to hate Twilight. Especially guys. I find that some guys think making fun of me for loving Twilight is a way of flirting with me. NEWS FLASH: it ain’t. You’d have better luck talking to me about my oil cleansing routine vs. my Twilight obsession. Kidding. If you talk to me about my acne issues, I’ll cut you.

But for reals, what is up with guys hating Twilight so much? Ok, I get it, the acting isn’t very good. And the whole vampire and wolf stuff is pretty childish. But that’s totally what I thought when I first heard about the books. I was like, “OMG that is like, so totally stupid. Why would I ever read that? I’m a grown 20 year old woman.” Well, I was right on one thing, I was 20 years old. But I LOVED the books. I couldn’t put them down.  The plot may be weird, the actors may seem awkward, but the love story is Seriously. I am truly a hopeless romantic and may be that for the rest of my life, but books and stories like that make me smile. And make my heart warm. So here is what I’ve figured out…if you hate the books and if you hate the movies, you hate love. And you have no romantic drive. Or want. If I just offended you, sorryfornotbeingsorry. The truth hurts sometimes.

    Girl, this smoothie is the $*it! I snuck it into my Whole30 challenge, my vegan roommate made it for us! AWESOME!

  2. Maggie mac says:

    My family loves this smoothie. I had some leftover roasted butternut squash in the fridge so I substituted that for the pumpkin. It made the smoothie quite a bit thicker. It was super yummy. Either way it is fantastic! Nice!

  3. Aly Hennessy says:

    I have 5 cans of organic pumpkin that need to be used by the end of the month, so I’ve been looking for recipes to use them in – that don’t ALL taste like Thanksgiving. This was was PERFECT. The coconut milk and dates gave it a fresh flavor. My sons inhaled the shake. Two thumbs up from the kindergarten crew!

  4. MandyM says:

    I just have to thank you. I am 6 days into my first Whole30 challenge. I have had a hard time today not busting into the giant bucket of my kids’ Easter candy but now, after this smoothie, I will make it through another night without stealing a Reeces egg from my children. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU. THANK YOU!

  5. Rheanne says:

    This sounds delicious! Can you use dried cranberries instead of dates in this recipe?

    1. juli says:

      that may taste real weird, but still could be good

  6. Tapetum says:

    Thank you, thank you! I’ve been looking and looking for a decent pumpkin-spice smoothie recipe, and every single freaking one has bananas in it. To which I am allergic. This is becoming tonight’s post-karate class snack.

  7. Michelle says:

    i also thought it was missing something…added some raw honey, 100% fixed and delicious!

  8. Cheryl says:

    Just made this last night – yum yum yum yum!! Loved this so, so much that I drank the whole thing myself!!

  9. Julie C says:

    I normally love your recipes but this was bad. Keeping in mind I don’t like pumpkin pie unless its covered in ice cream. I also hate nutmeg – I should of just left it out. Just wanted to review to warn anyone that has a similar opinion of my tastes will not like this :o)

    Reference the acne I’ve been using a face lotion that has alphahydroxy in it and didn’t intend for it to be for that but it cured it
