Before lunch I did a little helpful preparation for smoothies that we'll want later. Julia used the last of the pumpkin this morning in her breakfast smoothie, so I prepped more servings. One large can will yield five ramekins of smoothie pumpkin. If you don't want to buy pumpkin pie mix (I never do; this was bought by accident by my mom, I think), you can just add sugar and spices to each smoothie, or add it into plain canned pumpkin, as you prep the ramekins.
I also prepped banana for smoothies. I bought 5 bananas at the local grocery this morning, marked down to 46¢ for the bunch because they were turning brown. Perfect for smoothies, though! I immediately sliced them, spread them on a cookie sheet, and froze them. Then I'll put them all in a ziploc bag in the freezer, and we can have as many or as few as we need in a smoothie.
