Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk & Food Blogger Love

Hello Friends!

Happy Friday and happy 1st day of fall!

As summer fades away it is still 90 degrees here in Texas, I still love that it is fall.  Even though it is not as cool as the falls I grew up with, I just love the feeling of fall. I have been putting out some cute fall decorations, I changed up my door sign, and have been busy in the kitchen with fall flavors and spices!

One thing I also love about fall is sharing the love of some of my fav food bloggers.  I am always inspired by the creative recipes and the gorgeous pictures of so many bloggers! It inspires me to want to be better at what I do! (Saving for a new camera to get better pics is 1 goal this fall!) Here are a few amazing recipes from around the food blogging world, which of course includes my Foodie Friday co-hosts, Annmarie and Farrah!

Patty from Sweet and Strong blog with this amazing Pear Smoothie
Farrah from Fairyburger with her tasty Ginger Tea Latte
Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama with this flavor packed Pumpkin Spice Coffee Protein Smoothie
Katie from Gettin’ My Healthy On with this delicious Maple Gingerbread Smoothie
Laura from Viand {the blog} with this gorgeous Turmeric Pumpkin Latte

It is hard to go wrong with all these flavorful drinks just begging to be devoured!

I decided to go with fall flavors with make a twist on my homemade almond milk recipe! I have to say the result was pretty tasty! My husband was raving about it for days 🙂
