Smoothies are an easy way to get in a healthy meal. Plus, smoothies are so easy to put together. All you have to do is put a bunch of yummy, healthy ingredients into a blender and press “blend.” I’ve partnered up with Puritan’s Pride for the next three months to bring you three different, seasonal smoothies. We start with a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie | It's a Harleyyy Life

What better way to celebrate fall and Halloween then by drinking a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie? It’s better then eating that 100 calorie snack size piece of candy (or whatever the calorie mark is on them). Am I right? Right! Plus did you know that pumpkin is high in vitamin A, which helps your vision and support immunity.

Just add some whipped cream on top and call it dessert.

The recipe is super easy too! Just take all of those ingredients above and blend them together, add some cinnamon on top and if you are like me some whipped cream. If you are looking to add some protein I suggest Puritan’s Pride Whey for Her Vanilla(<—all of these links have 10% off and free shipping).

How To Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte with a Keurig

by Danielle @ Itsaharleyyylife on October 16, 2014

in Food, Recipes

Just like everyone else in this world I love Pumpkin Spice Latte’s at Starbucks. I could drink one every day of my life… FOR-EV-ER! Doing that though would probably mean I would lose my house, all of my money and possibly even Harleyyybear. Totally not worth it.

Cafe Escapes Pumpkin Spice | It's a Harleyyy Life

The good news: I found an awesome substitute! I’m not sure if you know but Keurig came out with a Café Pumpkin Spice K-Cup of their own. Of course I bought it… a lot of it. It tastes pretty good by itself but not like a PSL from Starbucks. Until now!

Lucky for you I’m going to share it with you because I kinda like you! I hope you enjoy it!

Remember to run hot water through your Keurig after you make the Café Pumpkin Spice or your next cup of coffee might have a little spice to it. Now go, try it out and don’t forget the whipped cream because that is the most important part!
