Pumpkin Spice Smoothies and a KitchenAid Diamond Blender Giveaway!

Pumpkin Spice Smoothies | HipFoodieMom.com

It’s Fall and pumpkin and pumpkin spice is in the air! So how could I not bring a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie to you today?

This week is all about my favorite things. .  and lately – although it’s hard to tell from my Instagram feed-  I’ve been on a heathier kick. I usually have a fruit + yogurt smoothie in the morning, about an hour or two before I run. Almost everything in moderation + exercise right?

These smoothies could not have been possible without my new KitchenAid® 5-Speed Diamond Blender.

I love this baby! This thing can stir, chop, mix, puree and liquify, with pulse 1-5 settings and a crush ice mode.  Say that 5 times. This blender is tall but it still fits on my counter just fine, right under my cabinets. And powerful!! With a “robust motor, unique one-piece, BPA-Free diamond pitcher, stainless steel blades and electronic controls combine to create a powerful vortex that is fast and thorough for exceptional blending results. Additionally, Intelli-Speed® Motor Control senses contents and maintains optimal speed to power through all ingredients.”

    We’re in New England, so the colors are the biggest standout for fall. But on the food side, I love all the harvest-y flavors, especially spicy mixtures like cinnamon, cocoa powder, and chilies in a hearty chili or stew.

    Not gonna lie, I saw the words “pumpkin spice” and was drawn in. Hook. Line. Aaaaand sinker. Yes, I’m one of /those/. An alert pricking up of the ears, an increased heartbeat, and a frantic turn of the head at the mere mention of the word ‘pumpkin’ is a plight that I must walk with but I’ve made my peace with it. Oh yeah. Several pumpkin spice lattes into the season has done much to quell my insatiable thirst for the orange hued brew. These smoothies tough, look, in all senses, fantastic. I haven’t had the pleasure of partaking in any smoothie drinking lately, owing to the fact that my blender has, after a reasonably good life of service, decided to leave this world earlier in the year. I’ve been looking to replace my old friend ever since, but with so many brands, styles and functions, how is one to choose?? I swear I leave the store more confused than when I walked in. Secretly, I love that this blender comes in purple and already I feel a deep inclination towards it (on top of being doomed to love pumpkin, so too, am I doomed to love all things purple). Even if I do not win this giveaway, I thank you for giving me another option (and a yummy recipe) for when I /do/ finally buy a blender.

    What I love most about Fall is the change in weather. It also signifies to me the onset of upcoming holidays that are meant to be spent enjoying friends and family making new memories and reminiscing on the cherished (and/or embarrassing) old ones and what better place to spend it than congregating in the kitchen while enjoying new found and old family recipes.

You can use them in soups, chilis, curries, pastas, breads, muffins, candies, cookies, room decor, candies, drinks, and they pair with chocolate, orange zest, barbecue sauce, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, bourbon, maple syrup… did I mention how versatile squash is?

    I am 56 years old and over my lifetime I have owned several different blenders, but to this day do not have one in my household. The other brands do not hold up and are made cheaply. I recently purchased a KitchenAid stand mixer and what a world of difference. If I own another blender it will be a KitchenAid. It has taken me some years to come to the conclusion that you get what you pay for and by all means, KitchenAid is my choice of appliances from this point forward. I would LOVE to add this blender to my new KitchenAid collection, whether it be spring, summer, fall or winter…this blender will get a workout from me!

    The first frost is my favorite day of the year. Pollen allergies go bye-bye & fall flavors are in! Need a new blender but afraid to take the leap to buy one.

    Fall has always been a favorite time of year. Pumpkins, apples, fall leaves,scarecrows, Halloween leading up to Thanksgiving. Full of friends, family, parties and fun.

    I love warm fall days where you can smell the fallen leaves in the wind. I love looking at the hillsides while the sun set shines on them letting the golden slumbers of the trees glow. I love watching the children jump into piles of leaves they all cooperatively worked so hard to build as large as possible. I love how houses are suddenly starting to become warm and cozy again, especially when the aroma of fresh baked goods fills them.

    A great blender is an amazing addition to a kitchen. I need to make these smoothies! Pumpkin craze is not a thing here, and I don’t even think starbucks has their famous latte. But after baking quite a few things with pumpkin in the past two years, I finally understand why. It’s such an awesome ingredient!

    Living in New England the best part of Fall is the beautiful colors! I am a cake designer and today I am working on a birthday cake for a woman celebrating her 80th birthday! Her grand daughter wants a fall deco, but not too garish. I am using a light peach gumpaste for the leaves that I will dust later with color. The roses will be a darker blood orange color. Check out my website!

    This looks like it is really really REALLY tasty, but I just don’t know if I could get into drinking my pumpkin? Maybe that is because we, well my family don’t generally eat this kind of food. Fall, or Autumn colours are just gorgeous, Im a summer bunny, but I do enjoy the way our city looks this time of year.
