Sam I am

It’s that time of year.

Pumpkin lovers rejoice and the rest of society rolls their eyes.

I only break out the Goose Island glasses for two occasions:

Beer + Smoothies (preferably both of the pumpkin variety)

Pumpkin Smoothie

  • 1/2 c canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!)
  • 1/2 c yogurt (I used Stonyfield Vanilla, but Greek would be good too)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • dash of cinnamon
  • ice
  • glug of milk
  • Blend! Blend! Blend!

Top with Uncle Sam cereal + some more brown sugar.

Speaking of Uncle Sam’s – I received a coupon from my friends at the HLS way back in August and I just now finally found a box of the wheaty flakes at my Hyvee. It’s a great smoothie topper and check out these amazing stats:

Sure I’m a fan of sugary cereals (hello Cocoa Crispy Rice Cereal) but I’m always in the market for cereals that are good for me and taste just as delicious. And with 10g of dietary fiber and flaxseeds in it, I think Uncle Sam’s qualifies!

  1. I have been loving pumpkin pie smoothies lately! Like pumpkin pie in a bowl!

  2. The smoothie looks GREAT!!

    And I would love to try Uncle Sam’s cereal! My favorite cereal is pri reeses puffs…or honey bunches of oats!

  3. I made a pumpkin smoothie two weeks ago and this morning I had pumpkin in my yogurt! I love pumpkin!

    My favorite cereal is lately more of a process than before. Quick oats, overnight, with either pumpkin or brown sugar!! mmmmmm.

  5. I love all cereals. Seriously. One of my favorites right now is Honey Sunshine by Kashi. I also really love any kind of puffed wheat. And Chex. I love Chex. It gets so perfectly soggy. I think I can say that Chex is officially my favorite.

  6. I’ve never tried that cereal! It looks good though. I love Cream of Wheat. Or plain cheerios!

  7. Oh wow. These have been popping up all over the place lately – yum!
    My favorite cereal is Kashi Go Lean Crunch!!

  8. I’m now following you on Twitter, too! (@heathamursch)

    Anything by Kashi for when I am being good…but my FAV are Frosted Shredded Mini Wheats. Yum! I love how the sugar turns the milk all delish. I will eat this for any meal, snack or dessert; so good!

  10. My favorite cereal of the moment (other than overnight oats or hot oatmeal) is Barbara’s Peanut Butter Puffins. Awesome in a bowl with milk and awesome to eat straight out of the box!
