The pumpkin love continue on with a cherry twist.
I wasn’t sure how this would come out. Pumpkin and cherries aren’t as well known a combination as pumpkin and cranberries– that tight fit due mostly to their positions on holiday plates. I found a lovely recipe by Nonstop Awesomeness Nathan. I fought back tumultuous jealousy at his catchy blog name whilst imagining him picking fresh cherries from his front cherry tree or the gorgeous orange color that his efforts created….
I love my smoothie too. I didn’t have much pumpkin puree left and used an ample amount of frozen dark sweet cherries.
One day, I’ll have a cherry tree and a large garden and everything.
Until then. I’m a stickler for frozen fruits and celebrating my birthday with pumpkin goodies.
